Games (1967, USA) C-100m. SCOPE *** D: Curtis Harrington. Starring Simone Signoret, James Caan, Katharine Ross, Don Stroud, Kent Smith, Estelle Winwood. Highly interesting puzzler about well-to-do but bored young couple Ross and Caan, who take in seemingly helpless, physically weak saleswoman Signoret. The enigmatic elderly lady seems to develop a special influence on naïve Ross… is she playing a game with them? Psycho thriller is well-made and keeps you guessing. A sleeper. Director Harrington also receives story credit.
