A good movie

4 years, 3 months ago at May 9 14:56
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. The plot has its fair share of twists along the way of course, but while it's not very suspenseful I felt the humor throughout was really strong. Plus for some reason William Devane seems to be aping Jack Nicholson which I found amusing. There are some flaws though, such as the Mustang that gets in a wreck but then is back to normal far too soon, but I"

"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."
