Video Beaverhausen: Joan Crawford, I Saw What You Did!

Crawford again co-stars with John Ireland in William Castle's I Saw What You Did (and I Know Who You Are). He also played her lover in Queen Bee. Whenever these two get it on, things don't end up so well for them in the end.

The plot involves two teenage girls who phone random people for kicks with crank calls. Thank Gd for caller i.d., huh? But they didn't have that in 1965, which is when this flick was made. So dial away for shits and giggles!

Leif Erickson, who co-starred with Joan in Castle's Strait-jacket, is also in this.

The film is indeed suspenseful and the acting is strong and convincing. This was Ms Crawford's last film for Castle before working with Herman Cohen in Berserk and -- gulp! -- Trog.

It's silly, its as campy as anything you'll ever see, but you'll certainly get a few scares as well.

Available on dvd from Universal Studio's Vault Series. I originally saw this, age 13, at the Clifton Theater on Main Ave., Clifton NJ.

  2. I'll have to see this again. All I can remember about it is how totally inappropriate the music is toward the end of the movie. Just as the suspense is being ratcheted up, with a showdown between the girls and the killer, Van Alexander's music suddenly starts playing like a goofy comedy. Totally undercuts the suspense.
