‘Cradle Did Fall’ Preview


Cradle Did Fall, promo2021-06-13T01:33:18Z

Inspired by a true story, “Cradle Did Fall” is the story where “a woman poses as an infant photographer in order to befriend a young mother and steal her baby! ‘Cradle Did Fall’ stars Kristen Robek and Ali Liebert,” according to the Lifetime press release.

The promo for the movie doesn’t reveal what real-life story the film is based on, but it does offer a few hints at what happened to the young mother and her baby.

The young mother, played by Liebert, can be heard saying, “The last few days, I’ve had this really odd feeling, like I’m being watched.”

There is then footage of her calling 911 and saying, “I’m alone with my daughter. I think someone might be inside.”

Then it seems like the film has jumped forward to when the baby is a teenager and riding in a car. She says to the woman driving the car, “Mom, we did the right thing, didn’t we?”, to which the woman replies, “Can you imagine if I left you with your biological mother?”

So it sounds like the kidnapped baby ends up being raised by her kidnapper (Robek). But just what did the teenager (Mattreya Scarrwener) and her “mom” do that she is worried about?

The case sounds a bit like a real case profiled on Oxygen in 2020 about Mary Alice Wry, a woman who posed as a baby photographer in 1980. She used her ruse to enter Bonnie Gamboa’s house where she then murdered Gamboa and kidnapped her infant baby, Richard Jr.

However, it sounds like the Lifetime movie is based on either another case or they took great creative license with the story. Perhaps because baby Richard is a real person and is still alive, living a happy life where he is a newlywed, they didn’t have permission to re-create that story exactly.

“Cradle Did Fall” premieres Sunday, June 20 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime. It is the latest in Lifetime’s “Summer of Secrets” slate. The upcoming films that will round out that programming block include “Doomsday Mom” on June 26, which is based on the story of Lori Vallow and stars Lauren Lee Smith, Marc Blucas, and Patrick Duffy, and “Picture Perfect Lies” on June 27, which is about a grisly murder that happened at a girl’s 16th birthday party. It stars Megan Elizabeth Barker, Laurie Fortier, and Matthew Pohlkamp.
