Katharine Ross stars as the photographer who moves to a small New England town and discovers that the community's menfolk have all conspired to replace their uppity wives with compliant robot duplicates. Bryan Forbes' 1974 adaptation of Ira Levin's feminist fable has its faults-notably the miscasting of Nanette Newman-but still conjures an atmosphere of real creepiness.
