Thanks for the review. I was pleased to have this disc in my collection because I like the film and both Gail Russell and Edward G.

Anyone who finds the film intriguing should try to see the 1934 movie The Clairvoyant, starring Claude Rains, which has exactly the same opening premise of a low grade performer with a phony mind reading act suddenly discovering that he can genuinely see the future.

Based on this review I did a blind buy on Night Has a Thousand Eyes. I like the Twilight Zone-like premise, and I'm a fan of Edward G. Robinson.
