News & Interviews for The Hitch-hiker
Critic Reviews for The Hitch-hiker
If they gave awards for holding a gun in every single scene of a film from start to finish, (William) Talman would have won.
There's no estrogen whatsoever in The Hitch-Hiker, as spare and muscular a picture as the 1950s ever produced.
Audience Reviews for The Hitch-hiker
Ultimately a bit of a shaggy dog story - but the first hour is tight, unnerving ride through the postwar male American psyche.
A pretty good movie, but it could be better, especially now that there have been so many other movies like this one.
Great little Thriller by the only female directors of Hollywood's Golden Age, Ida Lupino.
It starts out amazingly and then sort of peters out toward the end, but overall very enjoyable.
