About the film:
This classic tale of suspense tells the story of a secretary who flees to a secluded motel after embezzling money and her encounter with the motel’s odd owner. Originally receiving mixed reviews because of the level of violence, the film is now considered to be one of Alfred Hitchcock’s best and is listed on the National Film Registry.
