REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Tue., Aug. 22, 2000
This is the one Hitchcock film you can count on all psychology and art students to have seen. The film uses psychiatric methodology to solve a murder for which amnesiac Peck is being framed. Bergman is the loving psychiatrist who draws out his fractured memories. Artwise, surrealist supreme Salvador Dali designed Spellbound’s famous dream sequence.
