'The Man Who Knew Too Much': THR's 1956 Review

30 May 2017 8:54 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On June 1, 1956, Alfred Hitchcock's thriller The Man Who Knew Too Much, featuring James Stewart and Doris Day, hit theaters stateside. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below.

A suspense film that can run two hours without the audience getting restless must be pretty good. Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much, screenplayed by John Michael Hayes from a story by Charles Bennett and D.B. Wyndham-Lewis, meets this test. 

Hitchcock fans have reached the "show-me" point where they practically challenge him to bring forth enough new cinema inventiveness to hold them on the edge of their seats »

Night of the Demon (Rendez-vous avec la peur)

20 May 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This French disc release of the Jacques Tourneur classic gets everything right — including both versions in picture perfect transfers. Devil debunker Dana Andrews locks horns with Niall MacGinnis, a necromancer “who has decoded the Old Book” and can summon a fire & brimstone monster from Hell, no election fraud necessary. Even fans that hate ghost stories love this one — it’s a truly creepy, intelligent highlight of the horror genre.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Night Of The Demon (1957)

15 April 2017 11:40 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

My favorite thing about taking these weekly trips to the Drive-In is my own selfish thirst for discovery. I need to patch up the holes of missing films on my personal movie screen; there is still so much to see, and sometimes the holes are so big that they obscure the view. Every once in a while though, a film comes along that not only mends the tears in the fabric but strengthens the whole. Such is the case with Night of the Demon (1957), Jacques Tourneur’s masterpiece of shadowy menace and dread, and a new personal favorite.

Released in its native U.K. in December and then stateside in July of ’58 under the new title Curse of the Demon (where 13 minutes were trimmed from an already lean 95 minute running time), this Columbia Pictures production was fraught with anguish before it even appeared to audiences, most famously producer Hal E.
