| Really terrific, and frustratingly rare
I got to see this once on a hand-cranked (!) playback machine at the BFI. A very faithful and excitably filmed version of MacDonald's novel, with a feel very similar to Hitchcock's late British work. The loose American remake, 23 Paces to Baker Street- clearly designed to combine this film with elements of the successful Rear Window- is enjoyable, but this is the better film.
