The Man Who Knew Too Much 1956


description written by member Gabe:

The 1956 version of The Man Who Knew Too Much is generally consider a minor work by Alfred Hitchcock, however this extremely false. The countless scenes showing a vacationing American couple (James Stewart and Doris Day) seem to lead nowhere, but about thirty minutes into the film, during a dreamlike murder (which takes place in bright sunlight) the film really gets good. This sets up the second and third acts of the film. You get to like the couple so much, you are rooting for them as they try to rescue their kidnapped son amidst a plot to assassinate a visiting diplomat. Of course, the high point of the film is the assassination itself, a twelve minute wordless sequence.The ending, which involves a rescue at an embassy, is wonderfully silly and tense. This is one of my favorite Hitchcock films. It's proof that Hitchcock loved his audience and wanted to keep them thrilled! (read more)

I heard an NPR interview with her the other day. She discussed the song, Que Sera Sera, which she really didn't like. It is funny that it won an Oscar, and became her...

The Man Who Knew Too Much Movie Review by Shannon (11/30/2012)

The first half is flow but it picks up in the latter half. In fact, it probably isn't until the last third of the tale that I felt this got its momentum. That's right. I'm actually criticizing a Hitchcock movie. Gasp!

Starring Jimmy Stewart and Doris Day as a couple traveling in Morocco when their son is abducted by...

The Man Who Knew Too Much Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (11/5/2007)

An interesting and very tense Hitchcock thriller about a family on vacation in Morocco when the husband is told some sensitive information and their young son is kidnapped to keep him silent.

James Stewart was a great Hitchcock actor because he was the every man and we can all relate to him. Where Cary Grant was a...
