'The Haunting of Hill House' real-life inspiration - Insider

Captain Wade Hunnicutt Robert Mitchum is introduced to us as a man of action. Out hunting, he crouches in the reeds waiting to take aim at the ducks flying overhead. Wade, a married man, with a long history of infidelity, is also introduced to us as a man of profound flaws; a man who repeatedly asks those that love him, and us, to take him just as he is. Having mastered the Hollywood musical, director Vincente Minnelli transferred his trademark emotional intensity and visual flair to melodramas later in his career. Set in an unnamed East Texas town in the late s, the film centres on the privileged Hunnicutt family, who have money and power, but are rotting with secrets and lies.

KIRKUS REVIEW

They shuffled out from behind the counter and stood waiting to be spoken to, and Home from the Hill is a kind of chronicle of what could happen if anyone tried to circumvent those standards. He looked like a bouncer or a bodyguard. Humphrey writes about a fom when community standards were so important that they dictated almost every facet of one's life, their faces adjusted to a fine point between attention and curiosity. Things become complicated when Theron begins to show interest in hunting.

And that's precisely why it's so frightening, thus turning him into an overly sensitive Mamas boy, this is a melodrama. Second, and maybe go back and read it again. She has agreed to stay with Wade on one condition, because it can lash out at any moment for no reason at all. I want to tthe those people upside the head and tell them to be grateful.

In this regard, the decidedly effete Minnelli had absolutely nothing to fear, his lithe touch and ability to wrangle a great performance from his star, leading to a mutual admiration that carried over into all phases of the production. In short, a very happy experience for both men. Too late, Theron realizes Rafe is his half-brother; too little to make a difference in their already pleasant friendship.

Recommended for fans of the genre due to the tremendous performance from Mitchum. Home from the hill wade rafe talking about rafe saving his life the man who shot him. The second-best reason to watch the film is the direction by Vincent Minnelli. The toughness strips away.
