Classic 1960's Saturday late show movie
3 May 2002 | by (southern USA) – See all my reviews

This is a classic example of what 1960's Saturday late show movies were all about! Very well done with an impressive performance by young Fraser (Fiz) MacIntosh. (He is only credited with one other movie, Vojnik, which is too bad because he is tremendously talented and has incredible stage presence!) The movie was filmed in 1965 off the beautiful Adriatic Coast of Montenegro at an exotic vacation resort (with some of the local people used as "extras"). This movie wasn't produced by a major U.S. studio, and wasn't a major release. Its fame came from being distributed to local television stations in "film package" deals. Out of print and never released on VHS, makes it very hard to come by. It does tends to be a little "slow" at times and the musical score leaves something to be desired. But the superb acting talents of MacIntosh along with the excellent interplay between his mother (Veronica Hurst) and stepfather (Phil Brown from "Star Wars") make it worth your while to locate a copy. This a must see movie!

Jonno (Fraser MacIntosh) is a mischievous 12 year old who is having trouble accepting his new stepfather (Phil Brown) and is prone to tell a "tall tale" from time to time. On vacation with his mother and stepfather in Budvah, Jonno secretly witnesses the disposal of a dead woman's bloody corpse. Because he has "cried wolf" so many times in the past, nobody believes his story. Nobody except the killer himself, who vows to track young Jonno down and silence the only person who can put him behind bars. Very tense and dramatic ending. (Basically a remake of the 1949 motion picture "The Window".)
