    I think Hitchcock by the 1960s was out of decade, Practically all directors if they stay in the business long enough have a creative decline. Instead of making some of the 1960s movies he did he should have worked from some of the scripts from The Alfred Hitchcock Hour like Home Away From Home.

    OK. This movie was mildly entertaining— but I kept on thinking to myself that these two strong actors were basically just 'slumming' and they could have actually been putting their talents into something a little more worthwhile... such as Macbeth for instance.
