A suspenseful shocker, Lady in a Cage tells of ten terrifying hours in the life of a beautiful widow (Olivia de Havilland) who is accidentally trapped in her home elevator during a power failure. Her well-oriented world is destroyed as the elevator, nine feet from the floor, becomes a torture chamber - a cage. Unable to escape, her situation becomes desperate when the emergency alarm attracts a drunken derelict and his boozy prostitute friend, both bent on robbery. James Caan projects his raw power as one of the hoodlums who embarks on an orgy of wanton vandalism and sadistic brutality that ends in murder.

Very decent image from Paramount - no damage - a little excessively bright and hence shows some minor edge enhancements. It has sharpness. Although the audio bump (5.1) option is rarely tested, it has moments when it can display its prominence. Subtitles are well done and non-intrusive. There are no extras at all, but the price is right at only about $10. out of
