Matthew Lickona 2:57 p.m., May 17
The barrenness of the television-play production and black-and-white image works rather nicely in the early scenes of bleak urban existence -- the comfortless hotel room, Janet Leigh's comfortless bra -- but Hitchcock seems to be pushing and pleading, later on, to extract thrills from a nosy highway patrolman, a slimy used car salesman, a lonely wayside motel, a collection of stuffed birds, and a Disneyland haunted house. Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, John Gavin, and Martin Balsam. 1960.
