Donne might have been right when he described how death was subservient to man's whimsy, but Hitchcock was almost certainly correct when he plainly demonstrated in this film that man himself was but the bound subject of eternal peonage to fate. Hitchcock knew that each and every man and woman had a fear of what fate would determine was to be the ultimate course of their lives, and so decided to take advantage of this fear and create brilliant suspense through the (allegedly true) story of how a figure of average social standing that many could identify with was thrown into the lion's den and had his one route of liberation modified constantly by the very being that threw him in there in the first place. God, Hitch was cruel!
