In 1999, The Walt Disney Company, which now owns much of the David O. Selznick collection, restored the film, reinstating Miklos Rosza's overture/exit music and the flash of red from the gunshot scene that were previously omitted from later prints. See more »
Alfred Hitchcock's classic (and underrated going by IMDb scores) thriller about a psychiatrist (Ingrid Bergman) who falls in love with another doctor (Gregory Peck) but then learns the man isn't really a doctor but suffers from amnesia and might have killed the man he was pretending to be. This was only my second time viewing this and the first time in God knows how many years but I really loved every single second of the film so there's no question I'll be watching it a lot more in upcoming years. I thought the film had a high level of suspense running from start to finish with the usual great style from Hitchcock. the brilliant music score also helps things wonderfully, especially during the highly intense ski scene. Both Bergman and Peck are terrific together and they really sell the story and make us care about the two characters. As great as those two our the film belongs to Michael Chekhov who adds great comic support. The love scene was also highly passionate and the dream sequence packs a nice punch as well. The crowd I watched this with seemed to be really involved like I was as there were all sorts of little "tense" noises as you could hear people gasping and holding their breathe.
