Be Scared, My Lovely

He glowers the length of the hall
He towers and makes her feel small
A dark silhouette,
he looms like a threat
A shadow that's casting a pall

Ida Lupino is overwhelmed by handyman Robert Ryan in a production still from Beware, My Lovely (Henry Horner, 1952).

I love Lupino and Ryan together! Great verse too!

I agree. Two of my favorite actors. I recently saw The Man I Love--a terrific Lupino melodrama.
