||Synopsis: When his son Andy is kidnapped and held for ransom, David Stannard liquidates his assets to meet the half-million dollar demand. A casual remark by newspaper reporter Charlie Telfer makes him change his mind. Despite the pleas from his wife Edith and brother Al, and the resultant condemnation of the press and public, Stannard goes on a nation-wide television program, displays the money and warns the kidnapper that not one cent will be paid for ransom; instead the money will be used to track down the kidnapper if Andy isn't returned unharmed. The police then find the boy's blood-stained shirt. Written by Les Adams <[email protected]>

Watch Ransom! - Alternative Versions.
This film was more or less taken from a famous midwest case of a boy
kidnapped from a rich auto dealer's family in K. C., Mo. He was taken from
a private school by a woman in a nurses uniform and the press in K. C. did
hold off on the story until the ransom had been paid. The kidnappers were
caught within 4 days, and the little boys body was found soon after. He had
been killed the day he was kidnapped.
Now to the film. The point of the story is that it is 50-50 whether you get
the victim back or not. Glenn Ford as the father who makes his decision to
not pay but offer the whole ransom as a bounty on the kidnappers head, was
very pertinent in 1956. There had been other cases like this, but the K.C.
case was so brutal that it made headlines all over America for months.
As a woman who is old enough to have read about the case, and seen it on the
new medium of TV for months, while it was going on, this film is
heartbreaking and to me, almost perfect.
The mother and father and their anguish, the servants, who love the family,
and the police and other people who interact with the family, and the
company people, all are first rate. It is a slice of life as lived in an
affluent mid-American family crisis, and all the principle actors are fine.
The criticism I have read here does not stand up because the film is a
thoughtful and serious look at a dilemma and not a flashy showcase for
action fans. 9/10
