Details

Alfred Hitchcock's final film. Fake medium Blanche (Barbara Harris) and her boyfriend Lumley (Bruce Dern) are attempting to scam the elderly Miss Rainbird (Cathleen Nesbitt) by discovering the long-lost heir to her family fortune. Meanwhile, sinister jeweller Arthur Adamson (William Devane) plots a kidnapping scheme with his girlfriend, Fran (Karen Black). Although no link is immediately discernible between the activities of the two couples, their paths eventually cross in the most unexpected of ways.

Roger Ebert was full of praise for Hitchcock's swansong, reflecting that 'it's a delight for two contradictory reasons: because it's pure Hitchcock, with its meticulous construction and attention to detail, and because it's something new for Hitchcock—a macabre comedy, essentially.'
