There were some very eye catching newspaper advertisements, tag-lines and artwork for the Susan Hayward/Stephen Boyd film “Woman Obsessed” when it was released in the summer of 1959. Here are some of the entertaining captions:
“What was Mary Sharron’s Obsession?”
“As long as I live I’ll never forgive him for what he did!”
“You’ll never touch me again…this way or any other!”
“Raw! Bold! Turbulent!”
“She wanted the wildness in him…She wanted the nearness of him…She should never have taken the stranger’s love!”
“THIS WAS HER COMPLETE OBSESSION! This Man…This Love…This Boy…This Hunger!”
And below, some of the gorgeous newspaper ads. These would make me want to go into a nice cool theater on a hot summer day in 1959 to watch the ruggedly handsome Irishman Stephen Boyd take on the red-headed spitfire-diva Susan Hayward!
