After the family sees the flashes of light they stand behind the trailer. Then they go to check the car radio and leave the driver's door open. The driver's door is open in the closer shots but closed in the wide shot. See more »
I can't forget this film due to it's honesty and simplicity in dealing with a man who protects his family at any cost. Milland and cast are absolutely superb.Milland also directed. Suspense with no surcease from beginning to end. I believe that any man would do just as Milland's character did. This is truly a classic and much better than some so called "A" films.
