    It starts like a Fritz Lang, continues like a Hitchcock film, and then, ends like a Howard Hughes film. Doubtful, but still ok.

    Just FANTASTIC!

    By the 19th minute, I had convinced myself that I had the ending totally sussed. Oh, was I wrong.

    Simply brilliant film-making, which we are so sorely lacking today. The dialogue was also great - strange to see that screenwriter Douglas Morrow spent the rest of his career working in television.
