Two Line Reviews - #138

Movie: The Man who knew Too Much (1934)

Plot: A couple get to know of an assassination plot and the miscreants,to keep them mum, kidnap their only child. The parents,intelligently,thwart off the assassination attempt & rescue their child.

  • Hitchcock never disappoints!The humour filled screenplay makes this kidnap story a pleasant watch too!
  • The villain Peter Lorre,like in M, is a riot in this film too.
  • The concert & shoot out scenes were great and were definitely ahead of times.
Some amateurishly made scenes;maybe in the 30s that was the norm.But,such scenes are funny to watch now.

My Rating: 8.9/10
