Trivia

After being kidnapped and blindfolded, Rock Hudson (I) is driven past a lake with a gaggle of geese nearby. He later thinks this was the sound of the guests at a cocktail party--until he retraces his route and discovers the actual source of the sounds. This idea was borrowed by the producers of Sneakers (1992) when Robert Redford (I) is kidnapped, blindfolded and also thinks the sound of the geese he passed while blindfolded were people at a cocktail party.

Goofs

Vicky drives the van into a lake thinking it's not deep, she steps out and is up to her neck in water. Bartholomew jumps out and the water is up to his armpits. Seeing a boy approaching he scrambles up the bank and runs to the boy but now only his sleeves and chest look wet. Vicky comes up behind him and there's no water dripping off her. Afterr speaking to the boy they turn and run past the camera and you can see that they're now both dry. See more »

Blindfolded but not Deaf
18 December 2001 | by TheRookSee all my reviews

Good fun entertainment by Rock Hudson and Claudia Cardinale. As always Jack Warden does a nice job in a support role. When Hudson is kidnapped he makes note of the things he hears on the way to the kidnappers hideout. He is able to help the police track down the kidnappers following the sounds. To this day this movie stands out in my mind because of them noting the geese sounding like people at a party. Grab some popcorn and enjoy it if you are lucky enough to catch an airing of this on TV.
