Meet The Ladies Of Stepford!

You think “The Handmaid’s Tale” is torn from today’s culture – how about this classic sci-fi film?

The 70’s were chock full of classic films that have been forgotten to time…and it’s time to do something about it! Time to celebrate this sci-fi thriller!

Kudos To Novelist Ira Levin!

Author Ira Levin wrote the original novel, and I have more on this terrific writer later…first, let’s get to the movie!

The Stepford Wives!

Here is the plot to this classic film: Joanna Eberhart has come to the quaint little town of Stepford, Connecticut with her family, but soon discovers there lies a sinister truth in the all too perfect behavior of the female residents.

Check out the original trailer:

They are all just TOO perfect!

Katherine Ross stars as the newcomer to the neighborhood who realizes the term “Stepford Wife” isn’t a compliment…and something is clearly wrong with the other ladies in town…

This film is a classic, and in fact, the phrase “Stepford Wife” is still used to describe subservient women…

Tina Louise from “Gilligan’s Island” is one of the local women who doesn’t seem to have any ambition – except to please her husband, any time of the day or night…

Paul Prentiss co-stars as well…she is a terrific actress who really nails the role of a lively wife who slowly changes in front of her friend’s eyes…

Bobbie Markowe: [after being stabbed] Oh Joanna! My new dress! How could you do a thing like that? Just when I was going to give you coffee! How could you do a thing like that? I thought we were friends! Just when I was going to… how could you do a thing like that… just when I was going to give you coffee! Oh Joanna… I thought we were friends… I thought we were friends… friends… coffee… how could you do a thing like that? Like that? Like that? Like that? Friends… friends…

This classic thriller was very badly remade with Nicole Kidman and Matthew Broderick…stick with the original!

And now, more with Author Ira Levin! In addition to writhing this classic novel, Levin also worte this masterpiece of psychological horror:
