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

"First viewing - Jan. 31st Hitchcock's final film may not be great, but it sure is a lot of fun. I had a blast with the story and the characters.
