“Iu0026#39;m not sure what made this Hitchcock thriller seem so different from his other classics. Maybe it was just simply odd to see Andrews in such a film. Maybe it was just simply odd to see Newman in such a film. Maybe it was the odd combination of Andrews and Newman together. I think it was all the above, however, it was still a very good movie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAndrews did a superb job playing the completely confused, emotionally injured, and betrayed woman. Newman was good at playing the typical American man – silent and brooding when in a very concerning situation. Theyu0026#39;re characters were played in a very honest and realistic manner, especially the scene in the farmhouse, where you can see that Newmanu0026#39;s character, being involved in a situation where a man needed to be u0026#39;silencedu0026#39;, was in shock and didnu0026#39;t quite know what to do. You could tell he was thinking it was all too surreal – and due to his incapacitation, the poor farm wife had to do most of the work. One may think u0026#39;What a pansyu0026#39;, but I donu0026#39;t believe that most men are created to be like a James Bond character, or a professional hit-man.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLila Kedrova was wonderful, as usual. She didnu0026#39;t need a leading role to be effective or memorable. The character of the old professor was fantastic, especially in the scene at the chalk-board, LOL!!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI think this is a fine Hitchcock film that any Hitchcock lover shouldnu0026#39;t miss! It should have also received higher ratings!”
