Hitchcock’s 1956 remake of his own 1934 spy thriller stars James Stewart and Doris Day as American tourists who discover more than they wanted to know about an assassination plot. When their son is kidnapped, they are caught between concern for him and the terrible secret they hold.
When asked about the difference between this version of the story and the one he made 22 years earlier, Hitchcock always said the first was the work of a talented amateur while the second was the act of a seasoned professional. Indeed, several extraordinary moments in this update represent consummate filmmaking, particularly a relentlessly exciting Albert Hall scene, with a blaring symphony, an assassin’s gun, and Doris Day’s scream.
