Surprisingly topical Hitchcock thriller
on 15 November 2017
This film has a timely relevance in the terrorist atmosphere of 2017. Only the flippant ending jars with the carefully plotted story of a naive American family getting mixed up in a terrorist ring in 1950s Marrakesh. The two stars, James Stewart and Doris Day, bring surprising gravitas to their roles and the whole concoction does not seem as far fetched as it did in the fifties when it was made. The award-winning song Que Sera Sera has a crucial role in the plot development which only Hitchcock could manage so grippingly and so entertainingly. The DVD transfer was serviceable but not as vibrant as an old video version I have.
