Movie of the Day: Andrew Stone’s BLUEPRINT FOR MURDER

“DON’T TOUCH MY FEET!”

Andrew Stone’s 1953 film BLUEPRINT FOR MURDER
is a diabolical and surprisingly chilling film for the period, and still remains so. A subtle, understated film all the more effective and horrific for that understatement. Jean Peters gives a fantastic performance. And Joseph Cotton gives a typically compelling performance in a film that is unique by being not a “Who-Done-It” but a “How-to-Prove-It”. Tense and captivating, and builds to a riveting ending! Grade: B+.
