BLACKMAIL WAS NEVER CLEAN~ Ross Martin Shines as the "heavy breathing" blackmailer who wants a girl to steal some money from her bank~ Scared even in the daylight~ EXCELLENT MOVIE~
CLASSIC BLACK AND WHITE GEM~ Blake Edwards (THE PINK PANTHER SERIES) directs this scary GEM about a PSYCHO who blackmails for a "good cause" ROSS MARTIN (THE WILD WILD WEST) SHINES and gives one of HIS BEST performances as the NUT who needs money for a friends disabled son~ so he "threatens" 2 girls~ Lee Remick who works at a bank he promises to HARM HER SISTER Stepanie Powers~ this moves along very well and never DRAGS as Martin starts his psyco phone calls~ well filmed in black and White with excellent used of SHADOWS which adds to the TERROR soon the FBI G MAN GLENN FORD~ who is hot on the trail of Martin who is is ELUSIVE and smart~ one excellent scene where MARTIN DRESSES IN DRAG as a woman to get to Lee Remick in a ladies room is outstanding~ the clever angles and use of shadows keeps US on the EDGE of our seats~ I GIVE THIS A 20 OUT OF 10 for THRILLS, SCARES AND GREAT PSYCHO for a cause~ ROSS MARTIN~ ADD the Hery Mancini Theme which ONLY adds to the tension AND HORROR~
I GIVE IT A 20 OUT OF 10 SUSPENSE, THRILLS AND BAD GUY WHO SCARES YOU IN THE DAYLIGHT~
IF YOU FOUND THIS REVIEW HELPFUL PLEASE REMEMBER TO VOTE~
This is a really great film that brought together such huge talents that were superbly cast in their roles...Glenn Ford is the perfect "G-Man" of the FBI who must put together the pieces of an enigmatic puzzle to catch a very sadistic terrorist played by Ross Martin...Lee Remick who was such a stunning beauty, really did such a polished performance of the victim in which she was targeted by Martin to steal $100,000.00 from the bank where she works...he had her life all scoped out and even kidnaps her sister, played by Stefanie Powers, in order to enforce his demands when he becomes more desperate...The movie has a fabulous music score by Henry Mancini that adds such a mystical and haunting dimension...Mr Edwards really knew how to add shock value by his masterful use of cinematography...i would highly recommend this film!....brian musgrave, Fresno, Ca.
I bought Experiment in Terror because Ross Martin is my favorite actor of all time. I will admit that I was afraid to watch this movie because of memories of my grandmother watching horror movies all day on Saturday when she babysat my sister and I...I am sure this movie was one of them!
I was pleasantly surprised when I found that I could handle the suspense (the beginning is where it is really scary, when he...oops, that would spoil it, wouldn't it?).
I love how the viewer doesn't see who the attacker is at first, and he is only shown in "increments"...a dark shadow and just a voice at first (his foot is shown clearly in the second scene in which he appears), a silhouette without a clear look at his face, a mouth, a face being rubbed as he wakes, then finally we see it is Ross.
Stefanie Powers as Kelly's sister is wonderful in this role. She is really scared for her sister and this emotion gets her in hot water. She is fabulous playing the terrified young woman, and Ross is equally terrifying!
The end of the movie is suspenseful, but the final scene could have played out differently and been more believable, in my opinion. If this movie were to be remade it would look nothing like this version and would be ruined.
Henry Mancini's music is beautiful and sets the mood so well. I live near his hometown and my own band instructor in junior high was a classmate of his. His music has been an influence on me for years because of this. I am contemplating buying the soundtrack for this movie as well.
Buy it, rent it, see it somehow! You won't be sorry!
This was an excellent movie thriller. The only non-comedy film made by Blake Edwards (The Pink Panther). This 1962 picture reminds us of an older 1940's detective film. The fact it's produced in Black and White helps. Ross Martin (Artimus Gordon on TV's 'The Wild Wild West') is terrific as the movie's bad guy. You believe that he is capable of doing the crime. Stephanie Powers (Hart to Hart) is seen as Lee Remick's younger sister. Another familiar face is Glenn Ford's detective partner who played the bumbling sheriff in the 1976 Richard Pryor/Gene Wilder movie "Silver Streak". Glenn Ford at his incredible best. A must see movie.
