The Man Who Knew Too Much ★★½ 1956 (PG)

Hitchcock's remake of his 1934 film, this time about an American doctor and his family vacationing in Marrakech. They become involved in a complicated international plot involving kidnapping and murder. While Doris tries to save the day by singing “Que Sera, Sera,” Stewart tries to locate his abducted son. More lavish settings and forms of intrigue make this a less focused and, to some, inferior version. ♫Que Sera, Sera. 120m/C VHS, DVD . James Stewart, Doris Day, Brenda de Banzie, Bernard Miles, Ralph Truman, Daniel Gelin, Alan Mowbray, Carolyn Jones, Hillary Brooke; D: Alfred Hitchcock; W: John Michael Hayes; C: Robert Burks; M: Bernard Herrmann.
