This was one of several high profile 1960 films in which John Gavin appeared, all part of an effort by Universal Pictures to promote Garlvin into a potential competitor for America's top male box office star at the time, Rock Hudson. Among Gavin's other credits that year were both Spartacus, and his best-remembered role, that of Janet Leigh's fiancee in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. See more »
Malcolm says that his mother, a servant, will have trouble paying the doctor bills. By this time medical care in the UK had been free for twelve years. There were still private doctors who were paid by the user, but they treated the rich. See more »
I first saw this movie as a child, 25-30 years ago. Doris Day plays an American woman living in London with her British husband. There is a crazy guy stalking her, naturally totally freaking her out. At first, it's just a voice coming from who-knows-where, when she's out at night taking a walk. That voice scared me so bad (in about 1978), I probably had nightmares for months about it. Even today, it gives me chills. Doris Day is incredible (as always) in a rare dramatic performance. Rex Harrison is equally good as her disconnected hubby. It's so nice to see people like John Williams & Myrna Loy as part of the great cast. The surprise ending was so terrifying to me as a kid (why did my parents always let me watch inappropriate movies?), I wanted to jump out of my skin, & then invite Doris over for dinner & a hot bath! She endured so much as Kit Preston, I felt so bad for her! Would recommend to anyone who likes scary, suspenseful--but not gory--movies.
