Rosemary's Baby

Synopsis: Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse move into an apartment in an opulent but gothic building in Manhattan. Their landlord Edward "Hutch" Hutchins attempts to dissuade them from doing so: the building has an unsavory history. They discover that their neighbors are a very friendly elderly couple named Roman and Minnie Castevet, and Guy begins to spend a great deal of time with them. Strange things begin to happen: a young woman Rosemary meets in the laundry commits suicide, Rosemary has strange dreams and hears strange noises and Guy becomes remote and distant. Then Rosemary falls pregnant and begins to suspect that her neighbors have special plans for her child.

You know, you really should

discover the swingin' world of Yamaha.

Why don't you get on, have a ride?

Go on.

Okay. Come on. Let's go.


It's great.

I'm sorry.

I thought you were Victoria Vetri, the actress.

I'm sorry.

It's all right.

A lot of people think I'm Victoria.

- I don't see any resemblance.

- Do you know her?


My name is Terry Gionoffrio.

Nice to meet you.

I'm Rosemary Woodhouse.

Uh, we're new tenants here.

I'm staying with the Castevets,

the seventh floor.

I'm their guest, sort of, since June.

Our apartment used to be the back part of yours.

Oh, for goodness' sakes.

You took the old lady's apartment, Mrs....

Yeah, um, Miss... Gar-Gardenia.

Gardenia. Yeah.

She was a good friend of the Castevets.

She used to grow herbs

and things for her to cook with.

- I saw those plants.

- Well, now she grows her own things.

- - Excuse me a moment.

I have to put the softener in.

- What does your husband do?

- He's an actor.

- No kidding? What's his name?

- Guy Woodhouse.

He was in Luther

and Nobody Loves An Albatross...

and he does a lot of television and radio.

Gee, I watch TV all day long.

I'll bet I've seen him.

- Wow!

- Ooh!

- I hate this basement.

- Yeah, me too.

Gives me the creeps.

Listen, why don't we come down here

together regular and do our laundry?

Okay, that'd be great.

I have a good-luck charm.

It might work for both of us.

- Oh, that's beautiful.

- Yeah, isn't it?

- Mm-hmm!

- Mrs. Castevet gave it to me. It's good luck.

Or anyway, it's supposed to be.

It's got some stuff inside.

I'm not mad about the smell either.

I hope it works.

It's a beautiful charm, though.

I've never seen anything like it.


The Castevets are the most wonderful

people in the world, bar none.

They picked me up off the sidewalk, literally.
