A classic

Since I’m huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock, I was really eager to check this flick. To be honest, I haven’t seen (yet) the first version but apparently this remake is better. First of all, in my opinion, it is one of the coolest movie titles ever but, unfortunately, even though this title made me expect a spellbinding mystery, the whole thing didn’t really blow me away eventually. I mean, it was... read more

James Stewart and Doris Day give magnificent performances as Ben and Jo McKenna, an American couple vacationing in Morocco, whose son is kidnapped and taken to England. Caught up in international espionage, the McKennas' lives hang in the balance as they race to save their son in the chilling, climatic showdown in London's famous Royal Albert Hall.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2020: January (29 movies items)

"First viewing - Jan. 5th On this Sunday I decided to have a Hitchcock/Jimmy Stewart double feature, and led with the film I hadn't seen before. And yet, that's not entirely true because this is a remake and I've seen the original. I thought this truly improved on and surpassed that film though, one of the few times a remake hasn't been a disappointment at all. I'm not sure it's great, but it's excellent and I might have to own a copy."

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- January 2018 (33 movies items)

" Starz- 2hrs. First Viewing It's not the weightiest of Hitchcock films, or the most innovative, but his second go at The Man Who Knew Too Much is a fun thriller with beautiful craft and a number of great set pieces. Those aforementioned great scenes, as well as some appealing lead performances from James Stewart and Doris Day, are really what power the film, because the story is rather rambling; contrivances mount, and several scenes have a hit-or-miss quality that comes from their (often) needl"
