Edith Atwater in Family Plot

Family Plot

1976 PG

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.
