Commercial Break: Cape Fear (1991) and (1962)

We have to take a moment to remember 1991’s Cape Fear.  Frankly, one of our FAVOURITE performances by Robert De Niro.  Not to mention our beloved Juliette Louis as sultry young daughter,  Jessica Lange and Nick Nolte make up a disturbed family struggling through some tangled up legal woe’s… to say the least.   We admire Martin Scorsese and have to applaud this throwback to pulpy, sexy, retro flicks.

Not to be forgotten, originally done in 1962 and in black and white, every bit of this flick is as exciting as the 1991 version.   Starring the legend Gregory Peck,  each scene is more suspenseful than the last.  We would highly recommend getting your hands on this one, and have a popcorn night snuggled on a sofa!

And a strange twist would have it, or we guess inevitable claims of fame, both actresses who played the young daughter have/had musical careers!  Juliette Lewis tours as Juliette and the Licks, and Lori Martin had a record deal!  Who’s better, you decide!


Have you seen either Cape Fears?? And what do you think of Lori vs. The Licks?
