  1. I loved this movie and while it may not be "typical" Hitch it nevertheless has some of his signature elements - POV shots, sly ending, interesting background details, which brings me to a question. Did anyone else notice the man in the background in one of the steam room scenes? We see a vague outline of a person behind and between Robert Montgomery and Jack Carson. As he fans himself, the steam parts ever so slightly to reveal a quite large figure who, for all the world, resembles Hitchcock himself, though i do confess he is usually more dressed than in this scene. Is this an uncredit
  2. I did not get a noir sense from this opener. I did however get a sense that these two were a dependable team with no questions asked. They just did what they were directed to do by their partner. Long, patient editing was quite wonderful. No rush on the part of the cinematographer but the train hurdles forward at great speed. It was almost like a push and pull - control on the one side and the relentless moving forward of the train on the other. Look forward to seeing the whole film.
