The Whip Hand review
Agreed this is a wonderful period film giving a feel for the Cold War. Having grown up in Wisconsin I can appreciate the isolation afforded a hard core group of individuals as they concoct their evil schemes in the secluded rural woodlands. I can imagine a remake of this classic with several current Hollywood 'stars' playing leading roles in this Communist plot against a large American city. George Clooney would be perfect reprising the Raymond Burr role don't you think?
The Whip Hand
Very Underrated, I enjoyed this thing completely. It is however hard to understand the meaning behind the name of it and that just might contribute to its low ratings. This is a keeper!!
Yes, this film is underrated, but mostly by Leonard Maltin. Most everyone else, including me, like very much or love this little gem of a movie. Good story, lots of exciting moments, even Raymond Burr. What more can you ask for? All this, without the first curse word, obscenity, over the top violence or taking the Lord's name in vain. Great idea for entertainment, huh?Love this part of TCM. May you never ditch these true classics for the other kind. Thank you TCM. Please, please continue to make this type of entertainment your staple. Thank you.
Leonard Maltin should find another occupation, he is highly critical of almost every movie he reviews. You know what they say about critics.
Maltin's review was not too kind, but from my perspective, the movie theme is now more timely than it was in 1950.

Howard Hughes would have had a better film on his hands if he hadn't telegraphed who the bad guys were in the first scene. Maybe he thought he could get more government contracts for his aviation business.

This old movie needs to be In HD if possible, worth every penny! Apropos to the terroristic times with live in now a days, for we all trembled at German technology especially weaponry back in those War days, the Germans never slacked in anything such as, music, automobiles, and craftiness! Great movie!
Where has this little gem been hiding!!!!
