EXPERIMENT IN TERROR
July 29, 2019  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
In 1962, director Blake Edwards and composer Henry Mancini teamed for this tense bank-heist drama, starring Glenn Ford and Lee Remick. Ford plays the good guy, trying to help Remick, who plays a bank employee being forced to steal from her own bank. The mastermind behind the robbery has abducted her younger sister, and threatened to kill her unless the older sister follows instructions. The villain is played by Ross Martin, a few years before he co-starred in The Wild Wild West, and the younger sister is portrayed by Stefanie Powers, a few tears before she starred as The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. – but wait, there’s more. One year after filming Experiment in Terror, Edwards and Mancini would team again, on the first Pink Panther movie.
