the central ridiculousness comes off as hokey at best, insulting at worst

One is strongly suspicious, after watching this helter-skelter film, that Mr. Hitchcock was much less interested in his over-all story than in individual scenes.

Hitchcock conjures a deep-rooted, irony-rich complicity of father and daughter that seems borrowed from the films of Howard Hawks and suggests the inner compass that helps to guard against chasing the wrong man.

Even a lesser Hitchcock film is as good as a great film by nearly anyone else.

Wyman is delightful as embryo actress but the choice femme spot goes to Dietrich.

Often overlooked Hitchcock that's better than some of his more famous works.

November 24, 2003

Fun rather than thrilling, this duplicitous tale certainly isn't Stranger On A Train, but Hitchcock's weak films are still better than most.

Good Dietrich vehicle with the famous "false flashback"

Blame it on the subject matter: Stage Fright, especially for postwar Hitchcock, is all elbows.

The issues aren't satisfactorily resolved, but Hitchcock seems to be exploring the ways in which various falsehoods -- the falsehoods of acting, storytelling, and art in general -- can lead to the truth

A fairly routine thriller, noted chiefly for its cheating flashback, though with much more to enjoy than its detractors -- including Hitchcock -- make out.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The standard British murder mystery is raised to a higher plateau by Hitchcock in Stage Fright, but still falters in comparison to the best of the master's works.
