Strait-Jacket

Retro Poster: "Strait-Jacket" (1964)

"Lucy Harbin was declared legally insane today," narrates a voice during the opening sequence of the 1964 film "Strait-Jacket." Directed by William Castle, "Strait-Jacket" is a fun little gem about a scorned wife, Lucy Harbin (Joan Crawford) who hacks up her husband and his mistress with an axe in front of her 3 year old daughter. 20 years later, after being released from a mental hospital, suspicions begin to arise about her behavior. If you haven't yet seen this one, it's available on Netflix, packaged as a double feature with another William Castle flick, "Homicidal."
