A good movie

It has been a while since I have seen this movie and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Obviously, it is considered as a weak effort in Alfred Hitchcock’s other prestigious career but, I have to admit it, this movie has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. Basically, after the really bleak and intense ‘Frenzy’ (definitely worth watching as well), Hitchcock wanted apparently to ... read more

Description: The trickster Madam Blanche Tyler lures the elder millionaire Julia Rainbird that believes she is a spiritualist. After a séance, she discovers that Julia is tormented by her past, when she forced her sister and single mother Harriet to deliver her baby for adoption to avoid a family scandal.

"14/4/17 Alfred Hitchcock's last film is a light-weight thriller with Barbara Harris and Bruce Dern as con artists looking for a missing heir who happens to be a diamond thief. Plenty of Hitchcockian moments to enjoy but not up there with his finest, even though the cast seem to be having plenty of fun with the complex plotting and scheming. Enjoyable if slight."

A good movie

“It has been a while since I have seen this movie and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Obviously, it is considered as a weak effort in Alfred Hitchcock’s other prestigious career but, I have to admit it, this movie has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. Basically, after the really bleak and intense ‘Frenzy’ (definitely worth watching as well), Hitchcock wanted apparently to do something lighter and came up with this feature. Eventually, the plot was nothing really mind-blowing but it was fairly entertaining and I thought it was solid mix between thriller and comedy. I also had a weak spot for Karen Black in this movie and she would be the last femme fatale used by this great master. Concerning Bruce Dern, apparently, Al Pacino was supposed to play this part at some p” read more
