  1. le Gars's rating of the film Stage Fright

  2. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Stage Fright

    This lesser Hitchcock has some interest. Dietrich is witty and alluring when the police interrogate her while she lounges on a divan in a peignoir. Alistair Sim and Sybil Thorndike are golden. They compensate, somewhat, for the weak casting of Jane Wyman, Michael Wilding and Richard Todd. The story is not told with Hitchcock's usual precision but it offers opportunities for humor and irony.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Stage Fright

    >>> Superbe film de suspense qui tient magnifiquement le spectateur en haleine (n'est pas l'assassin qui l'on croit) avec un scénario original et parfaitement maîtrisé... www.cinefiches.com

  4. SpacePirate's rating of the film Stage Fright

    This one has a good story, but I must say its a bit of a mess. The main problem here is casting. Wyman and Dietrich just dont work well together, and the film suffers dramatically as a result. The slight twist ending only makes up for some of the awkwardness in terms of chemistry. 2.5 stars

  5. Rosina Rossini's rating of the film Stage Fright

  6. chiathirdeye's rating of the film Stage Fright

  7. Maudealan's rating of the film Stage Fright

    Marlene's character definitely gets some "wild sensuality to be contained" stuff but I liked it a lot

  8. groaningbitch's rating of the film Stage Fright

    Alright, all I can remember in that film is Marlene Dietrich and the fact that she was middle-aged then but appeared sexier and more attractive than Jane Wyman, who was just 23 then. That kind of stuff gives woman courage not to be afraid of growing older. But not every one is Marlene Dietrich. (Shallow me) Her presence tends to imbalance the film and the audience are led to overlook the rest.

  9. ΞRIC B∆D TASTΞ's rating of the film Stage Fright

    "safety glass" ahoi. the doll scene was great & the end is... split delicious - all in all, good entertainment.

  10. knockkneed's rating of the film Stage Fright

    i prefer this to most hitchcock

  11. Karthik's rating of the film Stage Fright

    Rohmer/Chabrol (seeking 'unity') and Truffaut (seeking suspense) seem to underrate this wonderful film, which is probably best viewed as sardonic self-parody

  12. ASHES IN THE HOURGLASS's rating of the film Stage Fright

    Not one of his best, but exquisite nonetheless. The theme of acting runs wildly throughout the picture even hinting at certain key plot points to come. It also has one of the finest villain in his filmography. Direction wise, the highlight is a long shot early in the film where the screen is in constant state of metamorphosis as it keeps following the characters. Add a wonderful ending, and you get an engaging result

  13. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film Stage Fright

    Non tra i migliori lavori di Hitchcock,che qui sceglie di giocare molto sulla finzione tra realtà e film e tra cinema e teatro.Sono ottimi il flashback iniziale e la costruzione del finale della vicenda,che invece nel mezzo denota una serie di lungaggini noiose e una scarsa caratterizzazione di alcuni personaggi. Buono, ma non eccelso.

  14. Dan's rating of the film Stage Fright

    Can a film be delicious? This one is. And that shameless posing on that couch by Dietrich...wow. Yes, it's 'lesser' Hitchcock, but it's also really enjoyable and watchable Hitchcock.

  15. MarcH's rating of the film Stage Fright

    Love the surprise...and any director who so maliciously fools his audience. Always perplexed to see the bad rap this movie gets.

  16. Hikaru's rating of the film Stage Fright

    Although there are some superb scenes, ultimately a lot of the ideas in this movie were half-baked. The problem for me was that this thriller is not so much concerned about the "wrong man" getting caught, but rather focused on whether Wyman could keep up with her acts and continue with her investigation.

  17. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Stage Fright

    Hitchcock's underrated whodunit is a thrilling mystery with wonderful acting all around, especially Alastair Sims' wonderful scene-stealing.

  18. João R's rating of the film Stage Fright

    Great but all of the theatre theme could have been more explored. Both the beginning and the ending were amazing! A mild and valuable mixing of suspense/crime and Hitch's usual humour. Entertainment guaranteed.

  19. Samuel Righi's rating of the film Stage Fright

  20. Cbarky99's rating of the film Stage Fright

    One of the Hitchcock films nobody seems to talk about, and a pleasant surprise when I finally watched it. The acting is a little broad, but that plays into the atmosphere of morbid cheerfulness (best represented by the Gill family) and the plot's an interesting variation on Hitch's pet theme of the man wrongfully accused, trying to clear his name. Worth a look.

  21. Omer Syed's rating of the film Stage Fright

    It's quite mediocre, the beginning and the flashback was interesting though but it started to get boring, eventually.

  22. Ingrid Bergman's rating of the film Stage Fright

    Alastair Sim steals the show! I enjoyed this lesser known Hitchcock classic more than I had anticipated.

  23. Giulia Di.'s rating of the film Stage Fright

    Ritmo lento ma effetto sorpresa ben riuscito.

  24. Jye Sherwell's rating of the film Stage Fright

    On the whole it's not a great Hitchcock film, but there are certainly some lovely aspects to is. Especially that superb crane shot that goes "inside" the house.
