If you want to see this unsettling tale (and as a present to the reviewer above, should he return), I first saw it on a DVD or video so you could hunt it down but you can also catch it (chopped into 10-minute segments) on YouTube.

I must admit it shook me up a little when I first saw it, and it has haunted me since. Perhaps unsurprisingly when you know the original story was Daphne du Maurier and Alfred Hitchcock was involved in the "Suspicion" series that it was part of.

I bought it as a present for a friend of mine and never expected to see it again so I am glad I finally tracked it down through Wikipedia. I wasn't sure it was the right film but then up it popped on YouTube and, yes, it is. I love the internet!
