A gripping tale; howver, I'm not sure about the beginning which seems to long from what it adds to the film.

Despite it being done in my grandparent's time, I rather enjoyed this film. It had characters that you really cared about and a good mystery to it! Anyone who like Hitchcock (and retro films) will appreciate this film!

What a gem! This was the last film Hitchcock made in Britain before immigrating to America. It features all of the hallmarks of his best films - a capitivating and intelligent melange of humor, romance and suspense. This DVD is from Criterion and features a very good commentary track as well as audio of Hitchcock from his famous interview with Truffaut. A delight for cinephiles everywhere.

A great romantic pairing of Redgrave and Lockwood. Hitchcock's American films could never quite touch the masterful ambiance of his earlier works, such as this one.
