With some great suspenseful sequences, including one involving Foster, a potato truck and a corpse, and some great uses of the camera for terror, Hitch made a remarkable return to making great thrillers. Besides the two great lead performances by Finch and Foster, we get a touch of some hideously delightful black humor (it wouldn't be a Hitchcock movie without some). Some of the best scenes involve the dinner sequences with Scotland Yard detective Oxford (Alec McCowen) and his wife (Vivien Merchant). Wait till you've seen the dishes she prepares for her husband, and tell me if you don't lose YOUR appetite. If I had a chance to tell what I thought of the film to Hitch himself...
Well, to use the old cliche, "Good Show old boy! Good Show indeed!" Bye for now.
