man who knew too muchAlfred Hitchcock’s, THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, is this week’s Summer Classic. A family vacationing in Morocco accidentally stumble on to an assassination plot and the conspirators are determined to prevent them from interfering. Remaking his own 1934 film, Hitchcock imbues THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH with picturesque locales and international intrigue, and is helped by a brilliantly befuddled performance from James Stewart. This is the only Hitchcock film to produce a hit song: Doris Day singing Que Sera, Sera. trailer
