Lost & Found: Night Has a Thousand Eyes — 9 Comments

  1. Dorian, Night Has a Thousand Eyes is another one that's right up your alley. I long for the day Universal or TCM gives us a clean copy, with full justice to Seitz's ultra noir cinematography. Until that time, Loving the Classics's copy will fill the bill.

  2. Jim, I've been wanting to catch up with THE NIGHT HAS A THOUSAND EYES for some time, and your fascinating in-depth review has only made me even more eager to see it! Cornell Woolrich's prose style didn't always make sense, but it was chock full of atmosphere and foreboding. (And don't get me started on his shabby treatment of his unsuspecting wife!) Most of the film adaptations I've seen of Woolrich's stories were better than the novels/stories because the screenwriters kept the atmosphere and foreboding while tightening up the plots and enriching the characterizations. And how can you go wrong with folks like Edward G. Robinson and Gail Russell in the cast? Terrific review!
