Doris Day is Julie (1956) & Morgan Fairchild in “The Seduction” (1982)

The harrowed heroine has always been tops at the box-office. Reviews and critical acclaim may beg to differ, but box office receipts prove that a pretty lady in distress brings the audience to their feet when she finally survives her ordeal and is somewhat better for the ride.

From Pearl White “Perils of Pauline” in the silent era to Sigourney Weaver in the Alien franchise -- perceived vulnerability turned to strength are crowd pleasers.

And, almost always, without exception -- “memorable" box office successes!

Doris Day is Julie (1956)

Julie is a 1956 film noir written and directed by Andrew L. Stone and starring Doris Day. With Louis Jordan and Barry Sullivan.

Film critic Dennis Schwartz gave the film a mixed review, writing, "Improbable crime thriller about a woman-in-peril, that is too uneven to be effective; the banal dialogue is the final killer. ... Doris Day, to her credit, gives it her best shot and tries to take it seriously even when the melodrama moves way past the point of just being ridiculous. Later disaster movies stole some of those airplane landing scenes."

The film is listed in Golden Raspberry Award founder John Wilson's book The Official Razzie Movie Guide as one of the The 100 Most Enjoyably Bad Movies Ever Made.

The Seduction (1982) Morgan Fairchild, Michael Sarrazin, Andrew Stevens

The Seduction is a 1982 thriller film starring Morgan Fairchild and Andrew Stevens with Michael Sarrazin & Vince Edwards.

It was written and directed by David Schmoeller. The original music score was composed by Lalo Schifrin. The film was marketed with the tagline "Alone... frightened... trapped like an animal."

... An attractive, well-known TV newscaster is stalked by an obsessed admirer, a TV station scriptwriter, whose obsession turns to hate when she rejects his advances and his moves become more harassing and ultimately murderous.

Although reviews for the film have mainly been negative which resulted in three Razzie nominations (including two for Fairchild), Oscar-winner Bette Davis was a fan of this film and after watching it on cable television she allegedly sent actress Morgan Fairchild a letter praising her work.
