CGiii Comment

The opening music is akin to a cacophonous cat choir.......
 
The film that Hitchcock wanted to make but was pipped at the post.......perhaps, for the best.
 
Anyone with half a brain can guess the ending.........that is if you can sit through the atrocious acting......the death scene is bordering on the hysterical.
 
Much praise has been lavished on this film...inexplicably so.
