Four glamorous leading ladies of the studio era are featured in a quartet of suspenseful melodramas that showcase them as endangered heroines.

Daniels (The Naked City, 1948) for veteran director Michael Gordon (Portrait in Black, 1960), Woman in Hiding marks the first pairing of Lupino and co-star Howard Duff, who would marry in 1951 and appear in four more features together including While the City Sleeps (1956). FEMALE ON THE BEACH (1955) Lynn Markham (Joan Crawford), a recent widow, moves into a beach house where the former owner fell to her death from the balcony.

Directed by Joseph Pevney, FEMALE ON THE BEACH is a stylish showcase for Crawfords intense performance and features Jan Sterling, Cecil Kellaway and Natalie Schafer in key supporting roles. THE UNGUARDED MOMENT (1956) In a rare dramatic role, Esther Williams stars as a high school teacher stalked by a peeping tom who might be the same homicidal sex fiend wanted by wanted by the police.
