4.0 out of 5 stars overlooked stylish thriller, 19 Jun 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Experiment in Terror [DVD] [1962] (DVD)
Director Blake Edwards is usually associated with Comedies such as the "Pink Panther" films and "10" and SOB". However he also directed a variety of others such as Days of Wine and roses and Wild Rovers. And this one. This was made in the early sixties in striking Black and white starring a very young Lee Remick and a slightly older Glen Ford. The plot is diabolically simple - a psychopathic criminal ( Ross Martin from TVs Wild Wild West) threatens a bank teller (Remick) and her younger sister with Death unless she steals $100,000 from the bank . She sensibly turns to FBI agent Glen Ford for help. The result is a tense cat and mouse game involving the principal characters and climaxing at a San Fransisco Baseball game. This movie is not flawless by any means -
the pacing could be tightened up a bit - The story could be compressed into a shorter time frame. But the performance are first class including a young Stephanie powers as Remick's sister who has a scary ( by 1962 standards) ordeal with the villain and the score by Henry Mancini effectively add to the tension. Recommended for thriller fans .
