Thought it was one of Huston's mediocre outings. It has so-so production values, with the look of a 60's TV show almost. And the de-masking was a surprise? Well, we knew that most of the key players were in horrible rubbery masks from the get-go. I thought the various actors surrounding them did a great job of acting. That is, pretending that many of the players looked like normal humans. 2 stars, ho-hum.

This movie is a masterpiece. It has an all star cast, most of them are disguised and one can try to guess who it is. The identities of these actors are revealed in the end. The plot is good and keeps you in suspense until the very end. This is one of my favorite movies. I have been waiting literally for years to see it on TCM.

i saw this movie a year after it's release.i thought it was a masterpeice of genius.i heard it didn't do too well at the box office.it was a movie you have to stay focused on.i liked the way the kirk douglas character wasn't dwelled on other than his past and motives.the entire cast and crew should have received some kind of award for this underated,overlooked,work of art.and let's not forget about the opening music theme(perfect).i've always felt that the movieshould have been ten minutes longer and detail at least two more of the killer's victims,to add to thesuspense.there have been a lot remakes lately,and i would to see this one remade with the same charm.three thumbs up

When I saw this movie,George C. Scott was the Inspector and the killer was Kirk Douglas.Other notable actors were Burt Lancster,Robert Mitchum,Tony Curtis and Frank Sinatra.The movie was thrilling,but the best part was the end when the actors removed their makeup to show who they were.That was the real surprise.I had it on VHS,but my player broke it and was hopeing I could find it on DVD.There is no mention of this movie with these stars on TCM.

This is one of the best mystery movies I have seen. I am a great fan of mystery movies and books. This movie keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end. It was nominated for the "Edgar" award for best picture of 1964. I can't believe TCM hasn't shown this in the last 7 years. I also can't believe it doesn't rank higher on the "Not-On-Home Video" list.
Adrian Messenger is now availble.

Yhis wis one of the greatest and most entertaining mystery movies of all time.
Great movie with a mystery inside a mystery. Only wish it was available on DVD.
One Of the Best Mystery Movies Ever Made!
This movie by far has been and always will be one of my very favorite of all mystery movies. Definitely a lost gem. I am genuinely surprised that it has not been released on DVD before this.
Love To See It Again
I notice in the list of cast members you failed to list Tony Curtis, Frank Sinatra, Robert Mitchum...and so on..Also, was'nt Kirk Douglas in the movie as well?
I have loved this movie from the first time I saw it back in the sixties. Intriguing murder mystery works on several levels as you not only try to solve it along with the protaganists, but also try to figure out who the big stars are in their disguises. My favorite actor is George C. Scott, and with a cast that includes Kirk Douglas, Burt Lancaster, Robert Mitchum, Frank Sinatra, and Tony Curtis, all in their prime directed by John Huston, how can you go wrong? Add to that a soundtrack composed by the late great Jerry Goldsmith and you have one of the most entertaining films ever made filmed in beautiful black and white. The end titles, where the disguised actors reveal themselves, are a hoot and is an added bonus. So, perhaps the biggest mystery is, why no DVD???
One Of My Favorites!

I saw this movie for the first time in the late '60s when I was a teenager. I loved it then and still enjoy it every time I see it! I believe the last time it was run on TCM was January of 2005, so another run would not be very redundant...
PLEASE! CONSIDER US, YOUR ADMIRERS!!

please, whomever has the rights to this movie, PLEASE release it to us! I have yearned to have this movie, or see it even on TV, to no avail. It means so very much to me; I have adored 3 of these actors since I was 7 years old, and am now 60. please, before I die, let me own this dear great movie. God bless you richly. judi anderson, Atlanta
