Long time Hitch fan, first time seeing this movie. Hard to rank it up there with his other classics, but a good family thriller. As usual, superb orchestration of the camera, good tempo and fine clash at the end: cymbalism!
Impossible to say anything bad about this wonderful Hitchcock thriller. Great from start to finish. And the best closing line of any film i can remember.
Good but not great Hitchcock. I wish this slot was reserved for Strangers on a Train or Frenzy, but it's still worth a watch.
Absolute classic. This has always been one of my favorite Hitchcock films, tight plotting, great suspense, and a terrific performance by Jimmy Stewart.
