Daughter of the Mind (1969)

Walter Grauman was one of the directors’ responsible for the development of ‘The TV Movie’. His very first film, however, was a horror movie: The Disembodied (1957) featuring a soon to be famous Allison Hayes. It was sadly several years before he touched on the genre again with 1964’s Lady in a Cage & Fanfare for a Death Scene (also released in the same year).

It was not until 1969 that this adaptation of the Paul Gallico novel: The Hand of Mary Constable, a cold war tinged thriller associated with supposed contact from the spirit world (which was one angle actually explored by spy networks) that this director became involved with horror again. Grauman worked with many famous actors it could arguably be claimed in the early stages of their careers or latterly after their stars had begun to fade. There are a few well known faces in Daughter of the Mind and regardless of where they were at in the various stages of their careers the chemistry between the whole cast is very apparent. Low budget, slow, dark, realistic and effective. Bit of an oddity and rather dated of its time but one of Grauman’s best.
