Probably not. The YT uploader (whose a Gregory Peck fan) also has Day's of Glory (1944) which was Gregory Peck and also Alan Reed's first ever film. You know that one ? I'm hoping The Macomber Affair will appear on YT.

For a couple bucks, you can watch the real thing, right on YouTube, through Google Play. But I guess, while it's there, if it's in good quality . . . :wink:

Yes, not seen it for many years though!

Spellbound is a tremendous picture -- one of Hitchcock's most engrossing. Peck and Bergman are terrific here, although their characterisations are straightforward, there are subtleties abound. Both are well cast. Ben Hecht's screenplay is also first-rate, both he and Hitchcock affording what could, otherwise, have been an uncomplicated tale of psychoanalysis, many narrative twists, turns and creative flourishes. Salvador Dali's dream sequences remain a particular highlight, as is Miklos Rosza's brilliant, innovative score.

The Blu-ray release is superb, incidentally.

I reckon Mozilla's downloadhelper is. Isn't downloading (and uploading) fun :roll: -

Thanks mate. Always a pleasure to read your posts. I don't believe SPellbound has been screened on Australian television since the late 1980's. It may have been on our Pay TV system.

It's been available on DVD for years. Sadly, one must pay money to own it.
