The Making of The Man Who Knew Too Much (2000)

*** (out of 4)

Good 34-minute look at the making of Alfred Hitchcock's remake of THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH with James Stewart and Doris Day. Pat Hitchcock, associate producer Herbert Coleman, screenwriter John Michael Hayes and Bernard Herrmann biographer Steven C. Smith are among the people interviewed about the making of the movie. The featurette starts off talking about how Hitchcock had originally planned to remake this back in 1941 but it got put on the back burner until 1956 when he was trying to finish up his contract with Paramount. We then hear a funny story from Coleman who was asked by Hitchcock to view the original film and comment on it but apparently the director was upset at what he heard. The screenwriter tells a story about how Hitchcock gave him the plot outline but refused to let him watch the original movie. From here we talk about the various issues that came up during the production as well as hearing about how the cast came to be. Apparently a few were against Doris Day but after the film most agreed that she was right for the part. Overall this is another very good documentary in the series that was made in 2000 as many of the director's work was being released to DVD. You really get a good idea of what went on behind-the-scenes and there's an extended view at Herrmann's big scene in the movie. Fans of the film should enjoy this as will those new to the movie.
