Description by OLDIES.com:

Fraught with the kind of tension that makes breathing difficult, this frighteningly eerie story of a middle-aged couple unable to cope with the loss of their own child has won numerous awards. Myra is a mentally unstable medium that believes if she kidnaps a child of wealthy parents, she can prove her psychic abilities by finding the child. Award-winning performances from Kim Stanley (To Kill A Mockingbird) as the disturbed Myra and Richard Attenborough (Jurassic Park) as Billy, the meek, apologetic husband, combine with tension packed location cinematography to make this thriller an enduring portrait of madness.

Product Description:

A fraudulent psychic medium bullies her spineless husband into kidnapping a child so that she may become famous by revealing the hiding place during a faked trance. Academy Award Nominations: Best Actress--Kim Stanley.

Plot Synopsis:

A crazy psychic, who believes she has never been given the professional recognition she deserves, forces her weak, asthmatic husband to kidnap the small child of a wealthy family in order to divine the child's whereabouts in a trance, and gain credibility.

Production Notes:

  • During the shooting, Attenborough developed kidney stones and could not work for an entire day. As the production was on a strict budget and shooting could not be held up, during one of the scenes, which involved carrying the girl, director Bryan Forbes got into costume and makeup and substituted for Attenborough. The scene was shot at Forbes' home, Seven Pines, in Surrey.
  • Rated BBFC A by the British Board of Film Censors.
  • The print used for the Home Vision Cinema VHS version is from the Janus collection.
