Movie Info

A minor but effective MGM programmer, Shadow in the Sky stars Ralph Meeker as a shell-shocked World War II veteran. He is taken in by sympathetic relatives, who hope that a stable environment will help Meeker overcome his neuroses. But even these people find their compassion strained to the breaking point by Meeker's increasingly erratic (and violent) behavior. Nancy Davis (a year before becoming Nancy Reagan) plays one of the relatives, while Jean Hagen (later the screechy-voiced movie queen in Singin' in the Rain) plays Meeker's long-suffering girlfriend. Ben Maddow based his screenplay for Shadow in the Sky on a story by Edward Newhouse.
