Diary Of A Mad Housewife 1970 DVD
Superstardom was predicted for Carrie Snodgress on the basis of her
spectacular film debut in Diary of a Mad Housewife. Snodgress plays the
long-suffering wife of pushy, insensitive attorney
Richard Benjamin. Unable to withstand being treated as a trophy (and a
tarnished one at that), Snodgress has a brief affair with sexy Frank
Langella. Alas, Langella, like virtually every other male character in
the film, is just as selfish and self-involved as Benjamin. Even when
she enters group therapy,
Snodgress is disenchanted
by the obtuseness and chauvinism of her male psychiatrist. Nominated
for an Academy Award for her performance in Diary of a Mad Housewife,
Carrie Snodgress dropped out of films shortly afterward to move in with
rock star Neil Young - with whom she raised a child. She returned to
cinema with a pivotal role in Brian de Palma's bloody thriller The Fury.
