Family Plot
Alfred Hitchcock's final film was adapted from Victor Canning's novel The Rainbird Pattern by Ernest Lehman, who previously wrote the screenplay for Hitchcock's North by Northwest. Barbara Harris plays Blanche, a phony psychic, hired by wealthy Julia Rainbird (Cathleen Nesbitt) to trace the whereabouts of her nephew, who'd been given up for adoption years earlier and who is now heir to a fortune. Blanche's cohort is "investigator" Lumley (Bruce Dern), who is fully prepared to milk the last dollar out of Julia before locating the long-lost nephew. Meanwhile, we are introduced to elegant kidnappers Adamson and Fran (William Devane and Karen Black). The fates of the two couples are inextricably intertwined by the search for the missing heir. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Hitchcock Classic


    If you like Alfred Hitchcock this one needs to be seen. There is a great cast and a complex story line. A simple con game leads to a long kept secret. A secret which would be a windfall for one character but endangers others who wish to profit from the discovery. There are parts which have you holding your breath waiting for the suspenseful next step. Only to have a twist which leads to watching more intently to figure out what is next. There are quite a few scenes in different locations. There are as many outside scenes as indoor. I would recommend watching this Hitchcock classic.
