  1. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The House on Telegraph Hill

    The Hole in the Cabin, the Disturbing Nanny and the Glass of Orange Juice. Forget a nonexistent William Lundigan because Robert Wise's got style and deserves to be rediscovered. Strongly recommended.

  4. ZYNAB's rating of the film The House on Telegraph Hill

    revisited this tonight after 4 years and it's even better than i remembered! it's an extraordinary women's noir that also contains a non-exploitative, poignant portrayal of holocaust survivors and their struggle. paranoia builds...and the reconciliation at the end between two women and rejection of a worthless man is so uncommon for this kind of film! perfect

  5. Log Lady's rating of the film The House on Telegraph Hill

    A mixture of film noir and gothic atmosphere, where views of San Francisco are beautiful to look at and used well, but the tension is never fully realized. Except in the promising ending, which has gorgeous lighting and the fidgety villain's suffocating anxiety permeats the air. After the prologue the focus seems to shift awkardly into a different plot device and problem, and the two never merge into a cohesive film.

  6. João Eça's rating of the film The House on Telegraph Hill

    A polish woman is liberated from Belsen and fakes her identity to inherit a large fortune in the USA. But the paradise she is waiting for soon reveals itself as another nightmare and the House on Telegraph Hill a mere substitute for the concentration camp: because of her crime she must relive her sufferings until atonement is achieved through the liberation of her son from the lies and horrors that inhabit the House.

  7. Dave's rating of the film The House on Telegraph Hill

    Solid gothic noir thriller, showing once again why Robert Wise deserves an even larger reputation than he current enjoys. It has some wonderfully suspenseful moments in this one, particularly the last 20 minutes or so.
