The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956)

3 Stars (out of 4)


By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Hitchcock remade his 1934 film in full color and with box-office stars Jimmy Stewart and Doris Day. Each version has certain elements superior to the other, but both films rank as minor Hitchcock works. While on vacation in Morocco, a couple's child is kidnapped after a dying spy whispers an important tidbit in Stewart's ear. The film won an Oscar for Doris Day's song "Que Sera, Sera," which Hitchcock abhorred, and master composer Bernard Herrmann appears as the orchestra conductor in the climactic Albert Hall sequence.
