Prescribed for comedy nostalgia.
Slow building and often with repetitive dialogue about the jurisdictions concerning life and death.
I expected perhaps a little more from the ending, however the ride is enjoyable if macabre.
Where to begin? It becomes apparent this is a very odd story when the housewife (played by Lola Albright) lets the intrusive man light her cigarette and lays on the bed with her legs akimbo listening to his plans. The pervading unreality about this is clear from the start as the husband (played by George Kennedy) is just too goofy.
Hitchcock's epilogue had already been prefigured by a line spoken by one of the characters.
