Failed attempt to go the Hitchcock 'who am I' route in Spellbound.

Audience Reviews for Mister Buddwing


Interesting failure tries for the profound but comes up short. Wastes three great actresses, Jean Simmons, Suzanne Pleshette and Angela Lansbury, although they all give very good performances.

Damn, this movie was great! It had Rockford in black and white, looking all hot, Angela Lansbury acting like a slut, Jean Simmons trying to outdo her as slut of the year, and a cab driver who gets the drive of his life. Both hilarious and sad. The ending was a little bit of a letdown, but whatever. It was pretty unique for a 1966 film. Nice jazzy soundtrack, photography. Caught my attention right away on TCM, so sad that it isn't on DVD. I mean, a man with amnesia that names himself after the combo of a beer truck and an airplane - how can you not make that available to the masses? There's some video on TCM online, and maybe they have it elsewhere online.
