Family Plot

Family Plot

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock

Written by Ernest Lehman (screenplay)

Cast: Karen Black as Fran, Bruce Dern as George Lumley, William Devane as Arthur Adamson, Barbara Harris as Blanche Tyler

Very loosely based on The Rainbird Pattern, this movie deals with a con artist/psychic and her cab driver boyfriend looking for a missing heir while two serial kidnappers go about their business. This Hitchcock thriller was far more of a comedy than the book.
