One of Preminger's best films, this stylish psychological mystery-thriller is extremely well shot and well acted by Olivier, Carol Lynley and Keir Dulea.
Somehow the unconvincing story is engrossing, as the marvelous supporting cast put it over... .
Olivier is excellent as the analytical inspector, his easy-going grace a delightful contrast to the two stars.
Artfully directed, professionally performed and just twisty enough to make viewers get lost in the overtly Hitchcockian trappings...
As disturbing as he's supposed to be, Wilson is also the film's uncanniest highlight.
Preminger's well-constructed and suspenseful film in the Hitchcock tradition is worth watching for the performances, but alas the conclusion comes as something of a let down.
