The Full Treatment

The Full Treatment

Val Guest (1961)

X Certificate


Our Score
Know in the US as Stop Me Before I Kill! this sees racing driver Ronald Lewis celebrating his marriage to Diane Cilento with a serious head injury. French shrink Claude Dauphin is supposed to be helping Lewis with some serious psychological problems but he's actually more interested in pursuing Cilento. The adult theme and a few sexy scenes earned this film an X certificate back in the early 1960s but it's mild enough now and far too long. At times the writer/director, Val Guest, seems to think he's making a Hitchcock picture but he needs more than glamorous locations for that. He also needs Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman.
