I had an adverse initial reaction to the hokey, contrived plot and annoying soundtrack of this film, but eventually it won me over. There’s classic Hitchcock suspense-building, and many memorable little touches. The old amusement park scenes are just great. The message here never loses that contrived feel, if anything the movie gets more wrapped up in its own devices, but I can’t help appreciating the artistry in it.

  1. Arg! That extra H will always plague me.

    I just find so many of those 40’s and 50’s soundtracks overbearing and too unrelated to what’s going on in the film. A pet peeve, I guess.
