DIRECTOR: ALFRED HITCHCOCK

CAST: MARLENE DIETRICH, JANE WYMAN, MICHAEL WILDING, RICHARD TODD, ALASTAIR SIM

Hitchcock’s last film in his native England until 1972’s Frenzy is an audaciously-structured thriller, making use of an extended flashback and a whiplash narrative about-face. Acting student Jane Wyman tries to save beau Robert Todd from taking the fall for a murder committed by stage star Dietrich, who shows her hypnotic charm in a show-stopper performance of “I’m the Laziest Gal in Town.”
