An Ernest Lehman script written to create »the Hitchcock picture to end all Hitchcock pictures«, a superb music score by Bernard Herrmann, a groundbreaking title sequence by Saul Bass, a whole bunch of high class actors. And our devilish director at the peak of his powers, obviously having a great time. The enjoyable result has been called the first Bond movie and is stylish all the way, apart from some special effects that haven’t aged very well.
»I promise you nothing but entertainment«, as Sir Alfred says in a trailer. In my top quality book of chasing the wrong man.
