Storyline

Marcia Fowler is sunbathing in her backyard when she spots a new neighbor, Roy Bullock, eyeing her. Frightened, she calls the police, who take her to the Bullock house and warn Roy not to be a peeping Tom. Marcia also asks her husband Jack to admonish Roy, but Jack finds Roy to be friendly. Roy befriends 12-year-old Stevey Fowler. Marcia begins getting obscene telephone calls, and blames them on Roy. When Jack and Stevey take a flight to San Francisco, Roy visits Marcia to leave a gift for Stevey, and to chide Marcia for her infidelity. Panicked, she overreacts, and soon regrets her rashness. Written by Lewis O. Amack

Sneaky Subtext
1 May 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Can't miss anything with Bruce Dern in it. He's a fine actor as his lengthy, distinguished career has shown. Nonetheless, he had a hammerlock on weirdo's at this career stage. As Roy Bullock, he certainly doesn't disappoint, a quietly unsettling role that he doesn't exaggerate. In fact, the entry's considerable suspense involves guessing how weird Roy actually is. Will he go further than just sneaking a peek at curvaceous cutie Marcia (Farr) in her revealing swimsuit. And why does he keep peeking even when she's fully clothed. But then Marcia is something of an exhibitionist with a belligerent husband (White) and a neglected step-son. And what about those whispering phone calls Marcia keeps getting. Who else could the anonymous caller be but Roy. After all, he and his parents just moved into the neighborhood, and her life hasn't been the same since. Plus, how wise is it to let her young step-son Stevey spend so much time with Roy who seems to enjoy the little kid's company. Is Roy just looking for another avenue into Marcia's household, and if so, why.

Well-acted entry with just enough subtleties to make the upshot believable. White's just right as the older husband, while Farr's Marcia has the right look, especially in her sometimes revealing dresses. But, of course, it's Dern who dominates in a quiet way that also injects a subtle note of pathos into the ending. In my little book, it's a solid hour of Hitchcock suspense.
