Hi I was hoping that someone, anyone here can help me find the name of a particular Alfred Hitchcock film. All I can remember from it is a flashback scene of the hero as a child. He is sliding down a banister outside an apartment of some sorts. We only see his feet. At the end of the banster, we see another child (his brother?). As the child reaches the bottom, his feet hit the other and pushes him off and ONTO a spiked fence.

Please tell me, which film is this?

Replies to Haro Girl and Mauzd:

  • The Hitchcock film with the banister flashback is SPELLBOUND.

  • The sadistic hostage situation is from MISERY, a Stephen King adaptation, not a Hitchcock film.

    Cheers, John
