This is a superior thriller from the early 1970s.I watched this recently,and I forgot what a good movie this is.The writing is very intelligent, and well done.The cast in this movie is very very good.I am amazed by how many superior actors are in this movie.Jess Walton, who plays the wife in this film,was in a very similar type thriller,just a year before.That movie is called Out Of Contention or The Victim made in 1972.Her part in both movies is very similar.The plot for both movies is almost the same,but with some differences.David Hartman did a wonderful job portraying the husband.I have not seen a David Hartman movie in many many years.I wonder why he does not make movies now.I watched most of his movies in the 1970s, and he was always a favorite of mine.Jane Wyatt,Ben Gazzara, and Ralph Meeker help to round out the excellent cast.This is a terrific mystery suspense thriller that should be seen.
