They stay at a rundown place called the Sunset Motel nearby. Soon the wife is having an affair with a man staying at the motel. The husband hires a psychotic criminal to spy on them, the wife and her lover plan to murder the husband, and the voyeuristic motel manager is spying on everybody. Written by
When the police pick up Bridey at the Drive-in theater there is an Edsel parked there. The movie is set in 1955, but the first model year for the Edsel was 1958, so there would not have been any available until the fall of 1957. See more »
This is a wonderful film, rich in imagery and layered dialogue. The cinematography is beautiful, the script clever and full of twists and homages. The music is wonderful and haunting. The acting is superb, and includes the only film appearance of David Johannson (Buster Pointdexter), that I'm aware of.
Great film, one of my favorites. See it!
