Caught and Sold

By dreams of romance she is caught
She's really just something he bought
Though handsome and wealthy
his mind is unhealthy
How twisted he is she'll be taught

Robert Ryan, Barbara Bel Geddes and James Mason star in Caught (Max Ophüls, 1949). Her head full of romantic notions, a naive model marries a remote millionaire businessman. Ryan is terrific as Smith Ohlrig, the cruel, neurotic and paranoid husband, loosely based on Howard Hughes.
