The debate still rages as to whether Alfred Hitchcock's 1956 remake of The Man Who Knew Too Much is superior to his own original 1934 version. This movie is a brilliant Mystery that takes the most cliche plot and make it into a edge of your seat thrill ride.

Hitchcokc's remake of one of his own previous films. The plot plays out much differently, but the story-line is unchanged. This version is much slower paced and longer in length (by about 30-40 min). More time is spent with the husband and wife, as they figure out the proceedings together. I don't like this film any more or less than the 1935 original, but I hold it in a slightly higher regard because it feels more in line with the director's accomplished works of the time.

Although nearly identical in premise to Hitchcock's original film, this remake is more polished and features the likable pairing of Jimmy Stewart and Doris Day. The intrigue is allowed to flow organically, which helps the film out; we are given information only as Stewart and Day discover it. The opera assassination scene, particularly, is a masterpiece of editing to build tension.
