    I noticed one big flaw. The two guys waiting outside managed to magic a knife into her back while she was inside. Now if they were in there and they wanted to kill the guy, as they did, why wouldn't they finish the job instead of running back outside to wait for him to come out? 10 years 11 months ago

    One of Hitchcock's very greatest. Very witty and endlessly entertaining, with a perfect combination of humor and thrills. 10 years 3 months ago

    With the exception of the magic knife at the beginning, it's a wonderful Hitchcock classic and serves as the herald of things to come in Hitchcock's young career at that point. The way that Hitchcock weaves the plot around the suspense is fantastic and it yields to a wonderful conclusion of the movie that brings us full circle. It's years ahead of its time and if you have the opportunity try to feast your eyes on the Criterion remastered version. 4 years 7 months ago
