Scors­ese’s 1991 re­make got a mixed re­cep­tion but this 1962 orig­i­nal pos­i­tively bombed. Per­haps its story of a lawyer (Gre­gory Peck) and his fam­ily be­ing stalked by the psy­chopath (Robert Mitchum) he helped put in jail was just too dark, too ahead of its time. Peck, Mitchum and sup­port player Martin Balsam all resur­faced in Scors­ese’s re­make, as did Bernard Her­rmann’s jan­gly score. When you've got a good thing, why mess with it?
