Well, I finished it, and it was rubbish indeed. Arguably one of Hitchcock's worst, and I've seen most of 'em. Totally pointless. But check out Francois Truffaut's interview book with Hitch and you'll find a much better ending that never was.

Btw, I checked your webpage , and I must say I disagree about NORTH BY NORTHWEST and THE BIRDS, I actually like them. But what the heck, everyone has seen those already.

Like I said, it may be just another stupid and empty snipe at Welles.

You'll get no argument from me. One of Hitchcock's many non-movies.
