Peels back the welcoming warmth and sincere innocence of small-town life to reveal the gullibility and the na´vetÚ underneath; it's a fiction about the perpetuation of fictions.

You've got to hand it to Alfred Hitchcock: when he sows the fearful seeds of mistrust in one of his motion pictures he can raise more goose pimples to the square inch of a customer's flesh than any other director of thrillers in Hollywood.
