A Dangerous Age is a 1958 film directed by Sidney J. Furie.

Plot summary[edit]

Sidney J. Furie’s[1][2] low-budget tale about young lovers (Ben Piazza and Anne Pearson) on the run from an uncaring adult world – they just want to get married but are thwarted at every turn – remains something of landmark in English-Canadian feature production.


A Dangerous Age[3][4] began as an hour-long drama for CBC-TV, where the 24-year-old Furie worked as a writer, and received critical praise when it was released in the UK where Furie was recognized as a fresh talent; however, it was ignored in Canada.
