Movie Info

Yes, there are commies under the bed. But are there Nazis there too? Emily Crane (Kelly McGillis) is a modestly successful Life photo editor living in 1950s New York, until she is called before the Senate Un-American Activities Committee to testify about her "communist" associations. When she refuses to divulge the names of friends in her civil liberties group, she loses her employment and her friends. In desperation, she takes a job reading books for Miss Venable, a somewhat crotchety lady

Audience Reviews for The House on Carroll Street

I've always liked Kelly McGillis (Witness and Top Gun come to mind), so I had to watch this movie. The House on Carroll Street' is a slow-paced mystery, where the most excitement is Kelly and the bad guy crawling along the wall 10 stories up in Grand Central station. It is pretty bad if the 1950's United States of America "officially" accepted Nazis as immigrants in order for them to work on developing weapons.

This is an awesome movie that I never heard about when it was released in 1988, due to being out of the country and movie watching was very limited. Kelly McGills who was my heartthrob in Witness, and who played in Top Gun, played the role of Emily Crane in this later movie, and she was excellent and convincing. On the other hand Jeff Daniels its hard to place him anywhere else then Dumb & Dumber. This movie is time set right after WWII and a high political official is helping smuggle Nazi war criminals into the United States and Emily discovers this and with the help of a Stray FBI officer she tries to put an end to it. This was a very enjoyable film. 4 1/2 stars.

A passable movie that has not aged well.
