Did You Know?


After being kidnapped and blindfolded, Rock Hudson (I) is driven past a lake with a gaggle of geese nearby. He later thinks this was the sound of the guests at a cocktail party--until he retraces his route and discovers the actual source of the sounds. This idea was borrowed by the producers of Sneakers (1992) when Robert Redford (I) is kidnapped, blindfolded and also thinks the sound of the geese he passed while blindfolded were people at a cocktail party.

Vicky drives the van into a lake thinking it's not deep, she steps out and is up to her neck in water. Bartholomew jumps out and the water is up to his armpits. Seeing a boy approaching he scrambles up the bank and runs to the boy but now only his sleeves and chest look wet. Vicky comes up behind him and there's no water dripping off her. After speaking to the boy they turn and run past the camera and you can see that they're now both dry. See more »


Smitty: Oh, um, you'll like Mr. Fitzpatrick - typical Madison avenue syndrome.
Dr. Bartholomew Snow: I'll make the diagnosis, Miss Smith.
Smitty: Yes, doctor.

Took off the blindfold and saw de-light
9 December 2005 | by rogertaylor1947See all my reviews

Channel 5 TV in Britain showed this film today 09/12/05 and I was very taken and surprised what a delightful and deftly made film it was/is. It was entertaining and though not deep you always sensed that all was not what it appeared to be and there would be a sting in the "tale".

Being blindfolded would never seem to portend a good omen a would always be an indication of undergoing a pretty serious experience though it's a way of you not seeing too much so that it may possibly portend eventual survival .

Seeing blindfolded men these days seem to be a prelude for having your head sawn off whilst still alive, a la Iraq, so there is always in this situation which carries a serious thread even it is interwoven with a comic touch and a dry sense of humour as is this film and the film is a success: an accomplished weave of dynamic and contrasting interplay of humour and seriousness: walking that particular tightrope is an act were you can easily fall off long before you reach the finish at the other end: too much rope for some films but this one skips there easily.
