Wood's brittle airiness is replaced in the film version by Michael Caine's smoldering bitterness. Sidney Bruhl is a successful writer of Broadway mystery plays who was at one time considered the Neil Simon of Broadway mystery writers. Unfortunately, Bruhl is now struggling to live up to his own reputation, suffering through a series of four consecutive flops. But then Bruhl comes upon the manuscript of a brilliant suspense drama written by unknown writer Clifford Anderson (Christopher Reeve). Bruhl, desperate for a hit play, invites Clifford to come to see him, telling him that he is interested in collaborating with him on the play. Actually, Bruhl plans to murder Clifford and pass off Clifford's play as his own. What Bruhl doesn't know, however, is that Clifford has some surprise plot points of his own up his sleeve.

I HAVE SEEN THIS MOVIE PROBABLY 10 TIMES BEFORE, AND STILL ENJOY WATCHING EACH NEW TIME. ( THIS WAS PERFORMED AS A STAGE PLAY, I BELIEVE, AND I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THAT AT SOME POINT IN TIME. ) MICHAEL CAINE AND CHRIS REEVE ARE FABULOUS TOGETHER IN THIS MOVIE AND PLAY OFF OF EACH OTHER SO VERY WELL IN THEIR ROLES, AS THEY CONTRIVE TO COMIT A MURDER, BUT THE ENDING SURPRISES PLEASANTLY.
