A Psychiatrist Involved in International Intrigue

This film begins with a New York psychiatrist by the name of "Dr. Bartholomew Snow" (Rock Hudson) being asked to by a man claiming to work for the National Security Agency named "General Pratt" (Jack Warden) for his assistance with a former patient who happens to be a valuable nuclear physicist by the name of "Arthur Vincenti" (Alejandro Rey). Naturally, being the conscientious person he is, he readily agrees to help his former patient only to be accused a little while afterward by Arthur's sister "Vicky Vincenti" (Claudia Cardinale) of kidnapping him. So, in order to placate the police and the press, he concocts a story that he and Vicky are engaged to be married and everything is the result of a lover's quarrel. And since Vicky is concerned about her brother's safety she agrees to this ruse. However, things get quite complicated with an agent claiming to work for the CIA named "James Fitzpatrick" (Guy Stockwell) shows up and tries to convince Dr. Snow that General Pratt works for a foreign government. Now rather than reveal any more, I will just say that this was an okay movie which had a decent plot with both Rock Hudson and Claudia Cardinale performing in a solid manner for the most part. Admittedly, the film is somewhat dated but even so it wasn't a bad comedy by any means and I have rated it accordingly. Average.

Could have been better

Can you imagine The Firm as a comedy? Well, if you can't, rent Blindfold, which is as close as you're going to get. It starts off as an interesting mystery about a secret government mission, but as the movie continues, it vacillates between a thriller and a screwball comedy. It doesn't seem possible, but it is an extremely strange movie that devolves so quickly, it ends up making zero sense. Why is a shallow go-go dancer who was so concerned about a little scratch on her knee earlier in the movie not at all concerned about wading through alligator-infested swamps later on Why is the tension of the protagonist getting caught and tortured by a group of villains suddenly destroyed by a prat-fall-ridden fight that ends in Rock Hudson laughing and spraying everyone with a fire extinguisher? No one knows the answers, or the answers to a dozen other questions you'll ask when other parts of the movie make no sense.

Blindfold could have been a great movie, with interesting twists and turns and double-crosses that make you unsure of who to trust. The comedic oddities, a ridiculous and shallow love story with Claudia Cardinale, and serious loopholes in the plot make it a film you probably won't rent again. If you're a huge Claudia Cardinale fan, however, you'll probably love this movie. She arches her back in every scene, prances around in revealing skirts, gets her clothes wet in three different scenes, has a lingerie scene, and wears a go-go costume so revealing she might have well been completely naked. Remember Marilyn Monroe's costume while singing "I Want to be Loved by You"? This one's even more shocking.

While strolling through the park one day...

This comedy thriller needs to be seen to be believed. It's half mystery/half Three Stooges, and a stunning look at Central Park in the mid 1960's. Rock Hudson is a noted psychiatrist, approached by Jack Warden in the middle of the park, and asked to assist him with a former patient. But there's more to it than meets the patient's closed file, as we find out when the former patient (Alejandro Rey) tries to strangle him, and later when a hot tempered dancer (Claudia Cardinale) arranges for a rather abrupt encounter with him along the Central Park bridal path, overlooked by the Dakota.

The encounter reveals to Hudson that more is going on than he was initially lead to believe, but Hudson manages to keep one step ahead of her, eventually breaking the ice until Warden demands that he breaks it off with her. But there's no way that's going to happen, leading to twice as much intrigue, verbal humor and physical pratfalls, and enough trips through Central Park to keep a pedicab in business for six months.

The many paths and bridges of Central Park almost become like characters, and much of it remains unchanged. But a good movie set in a popular city needs much more than just location to make a good film, and much of that involves not only the scenery but the farce as well. One sequence in the middle of a long gone storage house near the reservoir actually has Hudson swinging around with a canoe over his shoulders, ultimately spraying his enemies with paint. It's all very finny, but this makes it seem closer to a Bugs Bunny cartoon than a 60's thriller. There's some fun supporting performances by well known character players, especially Anne Seymour as an Eve Arden like secretary who obviously tells boss Hudson how to run his office. I guarantee that you won't be bored, but you'll be laughing at it, not just with it.
