This superb drama filled with spell-binding tension has not lost an iota of its considerable impact, even 40 years after it was made. Audrey Hepburn is mesmerising as the blind woman whose quick thinking is more illuminating than the brightest of lights
When this movie hit the big screen, it was one of the scariest flics EVER seen! But lo, these many years later, it fell way below expectations. Maybe because cinema has become so graphic - the computer-generated scenes, the gore, the absolute macabre & slimy scenes are now envisioned by the general public.\nThis movie should have been in the $5.50 bin at the stores, mayhaps? It drags, it is predictable, and I now own it. My library looks a bit bleek, with this new addition.
It's not too different from the non-Bond action thrillers of the same era, in which company it falls well short of the top film, North by Northwest. Plenty of period charm, though, and a few of the Bond franchise's most Austin Powers-esque moments.
