What I like?
A very popular Hitchcock, and script (however preposterous), music and cinematography are great, as is the acting; specifically James Mason. Still, for a movie with the Mount Rushmore scene Hitchcock had been talking about all his life, really not so great.
The plane attack on old R.O.T. in the cornfield is a classic.
