Costume Designer Morton Haack did the set decoration, but because this was against union rules, he was not credited for his work. See more »
In the scene where Lisa Schindler has her back to the dresser and facing Caan and Ross, you can clearly see a man (wearing a checkered jacket) in the vanity mirror. See more »
Stylish photography, very well acted and very well written and directed thriller that will keep you guessing until the end. Katherine Ross and James Caan as the bored kinky NY couple are outstanding in one of their early roles. Made in 1967 this film was way ahead of it's time with it's themes. If you like offbeat mysteries "Games" is a game you will want to play! Hard to find on tape, not on DVD and rarely on TV. Too bad because this film is like one of those lost cinematic gems. Hopefully a DVD distributer will release in a (hopefully)widescreen. Recommend this one highly.
