Trivia

During the production of the movie, Laurence Harvey received a hit in the face whilst he briefly fought against his wife Paulene Stone. And the consequence was a black eye for him, about which he was scared that prevents him to continue the shooting of the movie and then being sued for contract breaking. But, at the same time, Liz Taylor was herself very sick, the production stopped, so Harvey was eventually saved by this unexpected event. See more »

Quotes

Ellen Wheeler: Mr. Appleby, what on Earth have you been doing over there all the time?
Appleby: I've been preparing a bed for some new friends of mine. There's no substitute for preparation. You can't just stick things in the ground and expect them to grow. This soil is poisoned. That damned obscenity of a house takes so much of our sunshine away you're lucky to get anything to grow.

Why isn't this on DVD or VHS yet?
31 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

As one might expect, the film is a bit dated but nonetheless compelling. When I first saw Night Watch I was completely mesmerized by Liz Taylor's performance. The "murder scenes" that she observed from her window at night were used masterfully by the director. I believe that the director of "What Lies Beneath" must surely have paid homage to this classic because several scenes are strikingly similar. The tension builds slowly as does the mystery until you're shown the knife rack in the kitchen with the one missing knife. About that time you're beginning to wish you'd opted for the Disney film. The film's last 10 minutes of frenzy are etched forever in my mind and come to the forefront whenever I try to recall truly terrifying moments in cinema. I do hope that future generations will be able to experience this film even though it hasn't had the notoriety so many other films have enjoyed.
