    I loved the movie but the scene (or should I say the 2 seconds) of the spoiler
    This two second long part of the film is so stupid I could talk about it forever. Who's idea was it? I wish I blinked when it happen. I bet thousands of people did, that way this movie is still regarded as an excelent thriller and one of the best Hichcock's masterpieces...

    @ jktomas : yes you're kind of right about these 2 seconds, it doesn't ruin the film, but sure is disturbing.

    Other scene that i didn't understand : why did Haines have to win the tennis game? couldn't he just loose to end it faster? Is the tournament really more important than his life???

    Apart from some details absolute masterpiece in terms of mise en scene.
