Lady In A Cage (1964) The lady is Mrs. Hilyard, a wealthy poetess who lives in a three-story city mansion and her cage is her elevator, which stops a dozen feet short of the main floor due to an electrical failure on a July 4th weekend. She rings her outside alarm, eventually noticed by a drunken derelict, who breaks into the house, ignores her plight and helps himself to various items and alcohol. He leaves with his loot but returns a while later with a plump prostitute and three teenage hoodlums, who proceed to terrorize Mrs. Hilyard as they wreck her home.

Movie Trivia:
  • James Caan modeled his performance in the film after Marlon Brando in A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)
  • Joan Crawford was reportedly offered Olivia de Havilland's role first but turned it down because she'd just played a victimized invalid in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962)
  • The fate of Ann Sothern's character is never revealed. At one point, she is locked in a closet and never seen again.
  • The film was refused a cinema certificate in the UK by the BBFC and remained unavailable until 2000.
  • Although he had made an appearance in Irma la Douce (1963), this was James Caan's first credited feature film role after getting his start with sporadic television parts.
