Critic Reviews for The Naked Edge

All Critics (2)

A kind of Hitchcock parody, with even the Hitchcockian publicity stunts about not giving away the ending and tricks of Hitch-style surprise, such as a bead of sweat in close-up-and, quite simply, no talent.

July 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Scripted by Joseph Stefano (better known for Hitchcock's Psycho), this mildly engaging suspense thriller became Gary Cooper's final film, released posthumously.

Audience Reviews for The Naked Edge


Not a classic but not as bad as its reputation indicates. Everyone has made better films though. Hermione Gingold is a delight in her too short screen time.
