By Ira Levin
Directed by Norman McPhee
Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway mysteries, is struggling to overcome a dry spell when he receives a script from a college student that has "hit" written all over it. His plan, with his wife's assistance, is to do away with the student and steal the script. Suspense mounts as the plot twists and turns with devlish cleverness, humor and chills up to the final startling moments.
