The Naked Edge (1961)

Notes: 5/17/11
Flashy opening credits.
Written by Joseph Stefano.
Gary Cooper's last movie.
Nice cinematography.
Lots of quiet toward the end. Only sound is the music on television.
Adds to suspense.
Typically stalwart British cast.
Uninteresting. Nothing really exciting.

Review: C
British suspense film traps Gary Cooper and Deborah Kerr in a rather uninteresting story of Kerr suspecting Cooper of murder. Director Michael Anderson creates a thrilling atmosphere, but can't hide a mundane script. Kerr's fright and suspicion were put to greater use in The Innocents. Cooper's last film is a pretty forgettable entry in his career.
