Hepburn took a bit of a detour with this role; neither the pampered socialite nor the enthusiastic dreamer, she played Susy as a rather plain, ordinary housewife (there wasn't a tiara in sight). The performance earned her both Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Actress, while Zimbalist got a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Bravo ranked the film's climax, with one of the thugs pouring gasoline throughout Susy's apartment and threatening to burn her alive, as tenth on their 100 Scariest Movie Moments. 8:30 p.m. Domy Books, 1709 Westheimer.
