TMWKTM played on the big screen last night at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland--complete with cartoon, newsreel, short subject, all for $5--and I couldn't go due to other plans.

Check out the theatre online to see a gorgeous Art Deco masterpiece of a place--they show movies only once in awhile.

I just read something very interesting on Facebook.
Susan Olsen who played Cindy on The Brady Bunch has an older brother that played Doris's son in The Man Who Knew Too Much!! I'm going to watch the movie again and see if he looked anything like Cindy Brady! :lol:

Read in a google alert that Paramount is re-re-making The Man Who Knew too Much- with a twist - under the title - 'The Kid Who Knew Too Much' - reversing the roles in that a teenage endeavours to free his kidnapped parents. I know we talked about re-makes on another thread, maybe this is the way to do a re-make of a classic- by giving it some kind of twist?

Excellent. Arguably Miss Day's best film which is no surprise since Alfred Hitchcock is the greatest director she ever worked for. Stewart & Miss Day give excellent performances as an American man and wife thrown into international intrigue and espionage when their son is kidnapped. The concert hall sequence is a textbook example of how suspense cinema should be filmed. Hitchcock gives the film depth and several artistic nuances that help make the film a pleasure to watch. It's too bad Miss Day didn't get to work with some of the great directors of her era more often as her 3 best films came from the 3 most artistically proficient directors she worked with: Hitchcock, George Seaton(The Counterfeit Traitor, 36 Hours) on Teacher's Pet and Norman Jewison(The Thomas Crown Affair, Fiddler on the Roof, Rollerball) on The Thrill Of It All).

Maybe this is not the best film master, film is uneven at times... Well, here Doris looks and plays phenomenally well in my opinion :D Stewart was known as Hitchcock's favorite actor he is a very good actor, I will say more is a fantastic actor :!: :D The final scene of the movie is sensational, simply the world championship :!: :!: :D
I LOVE YOU DORIS♥

Psycho gave such a sordid example of the Mother Son relationship. Both Mother and Son were deranged sickos. The relationship of Mother and Son in the correct light was in The Man Who Knew Too Much. Doris and her son had a healthy bond of careing and intense Love. Many of us are fortunate enough to know the power of such a positive influence a dedicated Mother is. A Mother is always there no matter what you have done right or wrong. And truely your best friend. Doris's strong performance in this film had to come from having her own Son she loved so much to make her character come to vivid life.

Hi there,

I always think that the scene in The man who knew too much, where Jo learns that her son is kidnapped, is very familiar with the one in the Doris Day Show: Doris leaves Todays World were Toby is lost. Doris emotions are so very believable, I think her acting is super in both scenes.

Yes Peter, Doris was really a 'method actor', like Brando and others, she reached within herself to find emotions from the past to help her play the parts that required those strong feelings. That's why she didn't like experiencing the emotions required for making "Julie" and, especially, "Midnight Lace", where she had to be taken home after a difficult scene (in the lift, I believe).

Some actors believe you should just 'act' and not dig deep into past experiences but I think that Doris always wanted to be 'honest' in the roles she played so this was her way of doing it.
