Dustin Hoffman shines as a struggling actor who becomes a TV star and finds true love - by dressing as a woman!
An out-of-work actor disguises himself as a woman in a desperate attempt to get a role. After transforming himself into Dorothy Michaels, he lands the part as a mature woman in a New York soap opera.
The execution of a convicted killer drives his brother Chet (Darrel Howe) to embark on a murderous campaign against those who helped send his brother to the gas chamber. After almost beating to death the son of the district attorney and setting fire to the judge's house, Chet learns that his sister's boyfriend was the primary witness whose testimony led to the death penalty conviction. Chet also blames the boy friend for the accidental death of one of his friends, and sets into motion his final murderous act of revenge.
Vincent Price stars as an obsessed doctor who discovers that fear manifests itself as a parasitic creature which grows on the spinal cords of terrified people. If they scream, the Tingler can be destroyed. If they don't, it will sever the spinal column and kill them. He successfully isolates and removes the Tingler from a deaf mute (Judith Evelyn) who has been scared to death by her devious husband. Once captured, the Tingler escapes and runs amok in a crowded movie theater. Terror is loose, but can it be stopped? The Tingler is legendary horror director William Castle's magnum opus. After the success of The House on Haunted Hill, Castle devised a new gimmick called "Percepto" for the Tingler. Participating theaters would wire seats so that random moviegoers would get a tangible electric shock during climactic moments in the film. Another novelty used to maximum effect is the short color sequence depicting blood pouring from a faucet and filling a bathtub. Castle went on to direct more cult classics like Homicidal and 13 Ghosts and gained some mainstream credibility by producing Rosemary's Baby.
