This is a 1964 Hitchcock film with Sean Connery and Tippie Hedren (she was in The Birds).
Jolly good stuff too. Sean was great in his part, and I read that he wanted to do a Hitchcock film, but just as long as the character he played was nothing like a special agent, he didn’t want to be typecast. So his role in this was quite different and he played it well.
The story deals with rape so is heavy stuff, and not really what you would expect from Hitchcock, but it is all good. Is there such thing as a bad Hitchcock film? I have yet to find out.
Read about it on Wikipedia after watching, it is interesting to read how this was made.
