It's not helped by the wooden performances of the leads.

One of the absolute funniest movies of the 1950s, not least because it is perhaps the most puckish.
| Original Score: 9/10
Beautifully subtle suspense with a sprinkle of black humor.
I love it. I've seen it more times than just about any other Hitchcock.
| Original Score: 3/5
Despite the artifice, or perhaps partly because of it, the film manages to be enjoyable.
| Original Score: 3/4
| Original Score: 4/5
highly entertaining romantic comedy that still has the Hitchcock touch--a dark comedy using a dead body as the central MacGuffin
| Original Score: B-
Hitchcock does comedy! MacLaine's film debut.
A spirited irreverence about the power of death pervades. Think of this as a relief valve compared to most of Hitchcock's other films.
Very underrated black comedy from Hitchcock is really one of his best works.
This is a quirky and surprisingly low-key comedy that's more amusing than funny; it's witty, but rarely hilarious.
| Original Score: 81/100
Hitchcock's comedic charms shine in this delightful story about a corpse that just won't stay buried.
