Surely a logical reason must exist for why actors with great roles to their names end up doing garbage like MANIAC MANSION. Granger, who is best remembered for his fine performance in Alfred Hitchcock's classic STRANGERS ON A TRAIN (1951), plays a mystery writer turned sexual lunatic in
this wretched exercise. When his secretary turns up missing, Bouchet (the woman's sister) goes out looking for her. It was originally produced in 1972, but the American release was held off for six years.
