Dueling Critics

thumbs-up

“Comes off completely as a hit in the old Hitchcock style…the script and the actors keep things popping, in a fast, slick, sophisticated vein…does nothing but give out a good, exciting time.”
thumbs-up

“The real mystery is how the product of Hitchcock’s direction, given such care, toil and intelligence, could be so poor…it is a significant dud.”
