Librarians are stalked by a psychotic strangler who continues his murder spree from beyond the grave.
Fame came to Vera Miles when she attracted the attention of two master directors, Alfred Hitchcock and John Ford. Ford cast her in the classic western The Searchers (1956) and Hitchcock, who put her under personal contract and hailed her as his “new Grace Kelly”, paired her with the great Henry Fonda in The Wrong Man (1956).
Hitchcock cast her in the potentially star-making role of Judy Barton in Vertigo (1958), but Miles withdrew from the film when she became pregnant. Hitchcock gave Miles a supporting role in another masterpiece Psycho (1960).
Leon Lissek played the Sergeant of Bailiffs in Hammers 1971 film “Countess Dracula”.
