Our clips today are scenes from two movies starring Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve, both based on plays I enjoy. The first is Sidney Lumet’s Deathtrap (1982) with Dyan Cannon. Ira Levin wrote the play, which is as suspenseful as his more well-known Rosemary’s Baby but without the supernatural elements. Reeve plays very much against type, and Caine is as marvelous as always. The second is Peter Bogdanovich’s Noises Off (1992) with Marilu Henner and John Ritter. I had the chance to see the 2001 Broadway production with Patti Lupone and a pre-Grey’s Anatomy T.R. Knight, and I think it works better on stage than film. However, I highly recommend both movies as a pleasant evening’s entertainment.
