Something in me admires George Stevens’s perversity in shooting this film about entrapment and compression in ‘Scope, but that’s the only interesting quirk in this otherwise inert work, which represents Stevens at the height of his pretentiousness and the depths of his accomplishment (1959). From the play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett; with Millie Perkins, Joseph Schildkraut, Shelley Winters, and Ed Wynn.
