Cape Fear (1962)

Sam Bowden witnesses a rape committed by Max Cady and testifies against him. When released after 8 years in prison, Cady begins stalking Bowden and his family but is always clever enough not to violate the law.

This movie was obviously made so Robert Mitchum can be shirtless a lot. :p

Robert Mitchum is evil incarnate in this film. He conveys menace and threat with just a glance, and there's something sexual about his violence which makes it all the more frightening. Hard for me to choose between this performance and his amazing, equally chilling turn in The Night of the Hunter.

I know it was supposed to be suspenseful but I couldn't help but be turned on at times. Between Gregory Peck and Robert Mitchum, there's just too much sexy to handle.
