Major Pike's discovery of the truth does not come too early in the film.
The cut on his finger would make itself known to him sooner rather than later, so it would have been totally implausible for him to go several days before discovering the cut.

I agree that James Garner was over critical of this film.

36 Hours is essential viewing for all admirers of Eva Maria Saint. She was always good but in this film she is excellent.

Way too many spoilers here, I'm glad I've already seen the film. Still buying it though! :mellow:

This was on my "will never get a BD release" list of my favorite films. The randomness of WAC's releases is sometimes criticized, but then that randomness gets us some gems like this that weren't on anyone's radar for a BD release.

It's interesting how many films are discussed for "early reveals."

The flashback dupe section in Vertigo, was in, out, and then back into the cut and conformed negative, as people counseled Hitchcock on the subject.

If you view the film without the sequence, where it now resides, the entire aura of the film changes.
