Karthik's rating of the film Night Has a Thousand Eyes

The strain of fatalism in the hard-boiled noir fiction found its apogee in the novels of Cornell Woolrich (also responsible for the story material of Rear Window, Bride Wore Black, Leopard Man, Phantom Lady etc) & finds its obsessive filmic exposition in this very loose adaptation of the eponymous Woolrich novel. It is efficiently directed by John Farrow and expertly acted by an aging, self-haunted Robinson.
