OVERVIEW

Brief Synopsis

In this remake of the celebrated 1954 Hitchcock film, Christopher Plummer is the London businessman whose intricate plan to murder his unfaithful wife for her money backfires. Initially, Frederick Knott (who also later wrote "Wait Until Dark") concocted this as a play for British television in 1952, and it later went on to become a success on the London stage as well as Broadway, and twice earlier on American TV: with Maurice Evans and Rosemary Harris in 1958 and then nine years later with Laurence Harvey and Diane Cilento.
