Another Hitchcock Gem,
This review is from: Spellbound  [DVD] (DVD)
Anyone who has even a passing interest in psychology, and enjoys Alfred Hitchcock, should see this movie. Ingrid Bergman is sensational as the serious minded and unintentionally sexy psychiatrist, Contance Peterson, practicing at a mental institution. Gregory Peck is very convincing as the mysterious and peculiar Dr. Ballantine, who comes to work at the mental health facility. It becomes obvious that Ballantine, who turns out to be as troubled as many of his patients, was involved in a crime. Amnesia prevents him from remembering the details. Dr. Peterson, who falls deeply in love with him, is convinced that he is guiltless. She struggles to put together the puzzle that she believes will prove his innocence.
