"a British Classic"? well, it does have Lizbeth Scott and Paul Henreid but "really dumb, campy woman's thriller" would be a better description. It had its moments but only at rare intervals is either any good or so bad it's good. It seems to have been made at a point in the stars' careers when, at that time, leftover actors would seek work in London on leftover material. Shoulda given it only 2 stars. I was feeling pretty impatient through most of this film.
Super psychologically freaky. This was definitely made before the 70's. The main character is completely controlling of the women around him and that directly leads to his problems, but they never address that as the root of the problem.
Stolen Face is remarkable for its two main characters, Lizabeth Scott and Paul Henried. Veteran actors that can make the screen sizzle. Working with a good script, they make the story come to life and build the suspense gradually. I recommend it highly.
good movie,it was'nt long could of been more to the movie.
Good story line and very meaningful. The movie proves that you can't change or make someone into something they aren't.
fun movie though a bit campy.
Compared to Eyes without Face, Dead Ringer, Scar, Strange Impersonation, among others, Stolen Face is an epic fail. Lizbeth Scott and Paul Henreid do the best they can, but they cannot save a mediocre film.
melodramatic, film noir, the best!
i liked it!
