Family Plot

Alfred Hitchcock's last film is unusual! Rather than being super-suspenseful with the likes of "Vertigo" or "Rear Window," it's a splendid light-hearted romp! Barbara Harris stars as a spiritualist and one of her clients is trying to reach the illegitimate son of her deceased sister because he's her only heir. She's willing to pay Harris ten thousand dollars for her services. Unfortunately, Harris isn't a true psychic so she has to rely on her boyfriend, Bruce Dern, to find him the old fashioned way. Enjoyable; perfect for mystery lovers.
