Near the beginning of the film, after Alan successfully passes the truck and pulls over to the side of the road, he leaps out of the car without setting the parking brake. Denise is seen pulling on the handbrake, but the car continues to move until the end of the shot, with the front of the car going past the roadside sign. In the next shot, the car has been moved back so that its front is even with the sign. See more »
You know, only the unsuccessful murderers disclose their crimes.
And the successful ones?
Well, they draw their reward from a feeling of personal power.

Columbia cut the film to 93 min when they released it in the US, but the TV arm of Columbia, Screen Gems, syndicated a toned down 107 min. print to US television for years. See more »
He Needs Help.
Val Guest directed this psychological suspense yarn about a race car driver(played by Ronald Lewis) who is having huge stress issues after nearly cracking up in a car race. He takes his wife(played by Diane Cilento) on a trip to the South of France for a vacation, but is still plagued by stress and other psychological issues, so agrees to see a psychiatrist(played by Claude Dauphin) but complications ensue, as things(of course) are not all that they seem. Misfired attempt at suspense has a good cast but is fatally overlong and far too talky, with nothing in the story justifying this over-length, as film becomes quite tedious.
