Synopsis

Ben McKenna, an American doctor, and his family stumble into the middle of an assassination plot while vacationing in Marrakesh. When his son is kidnapped by the conspirators, McKenna must race against the clock to stop the murder and save his son's life.

Description

While vacationing in French Morocco, an American family becomes accidentally involved in a series of international incidents after the father overhears an assassination plot. Compared with its 1935 predecessor, this version is lavish, with a larger budget and a much larger cast. While maintaining Hitchcock's fascination with an average Joe caught up in menacing events, the characters portrayed by Stewart and Day put a melodramatic spin on the story with 1950's sensibilities and concern about a family imperiled - an effect, some critics argue, which detracts from the original's tight suspense.

Notes

Additional cast members: Alix Talton (as Helen Parnell), Yves Brainville (Police Inspector), and Mogens Wieth (Ambassador). Filmed on location in Marrakech in French Morocco and in London. Shot in VistaVision and Technicolor. "The Man Who Knew Too Much" was a remake of a 1934 Alfred Hitchcock movie of the same title. This earlier British version starred Leslie Banks, Edna Best, and Peter Lorre. For many years, this version was withheld from distribution, along with "Vertigo", "Rear Window", "Rope" and "The Trouble with Harry". MCA/Universal issued the video in a new package look on May 23, 1995.
