Alfred Hitchcock's final film (at age 76) is an easygoing suspense mystery. An atypically heroic Bruce Dern (who was in Hitch's Marnie 12 years earlier) plays a cabbie who teams with a semi-phony psychic (Barbara Harris) to collect a big reward by finding a kidnapped millionaire. Watch for visual references to previous Hitchcock classics. Ernest Lehman, Hitchcock's collaborator on North by Northwest, adapted the novel by Victor Canning.
