    1) ruth gordon worrying about the knife mark in the floor at the end of the movie (my favorite scene of them all for reasons unknown!) 2) "we'll shut you up milk or no milk" and (of course) 3) WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT, GUY'S EYES ARE NORMAL!!!

      Your summon was successful! She is currently in my kitchen, making me a delicious-looking milkshake and inquiring about the prices of my household appliances! Gee, this pregnancy sure has brought some strange and wonderful things into my life. Can't wait to bring sweet little Andy or Jenny into the world. :)

    1) The unerring sense of realness in a situation easily reduced by lesser directors to camp or banality. 2) The evocation of 60s New York, replete with drag queens (the party scene), the pope at Yankee Stadium, and the marvelous Dakota building (renamed the Bramford in the film). 3) As Andrew Sarris once observed, a plot so perfectly constructed---in an age of themes.

      Amen!! This movie imprints itself on your psyche unlike slasher horror movies! This one lures you in and works like a slow venom......A moody, paranoid chiller. Gave me nightmares at 13 where I'd be looking out my window and saw an army of demons marching toward my house. One of the best movies ever made!

    I saw this movie in first run in 1968 in Tokyo, Japan. Frankly, the audience was mostly mystified: I think they were expecting a variation on the TV series "Peyton Place", because of Mia Farrow, then hugely popular in Japan. Instead, what they got was a really great horror movie. Although there are many wonderful things about this movie, Sidney Blackmer as Roman Castevet still sticks in my mind. "I've been there", he says about really obscure places like Al Manama, Bahrain. Actually, I have been there, but then I am a retired sea captain. Thank you, Mr. Polanski.

    Love the great characters who pop up, familiar faces that make me feel at ease just before the guillotine falls: Hope Summers, Clara on Andy Griffith; silly old Patsy Kelly; Elisha Cook Jr; Ralph Bellamy. Just some sweet old people. Then, boom.

      agreed. I think Aunt Bea's friend Clara (Hope Summers) in this movie is one of the most frightening things about it..! (She's unrecognizable in Homicidal, and Cook, Jr. is also in The House on Haunted Hill. It's nice to see a few Castle touches here..!)

    1) Hutch, Rosemary's lone ally, played perfectly by Maurice Evans (was Elizabeth Montgomery's warlock father on "Bewitched"). 2) Rosemary working out the anagram on the Scrabble board. For some reason this gets to me more than any scene. Great visual metaphor for the horror hidden within the banal theme. 3). The baby is never shown. Even at the end, the possibility remains that Rosemary, Guy, and the coven-all of them-are off their rockers.

    It is creepy to think that this is the same building where John Lennon lived and was murdered.

    The greatest American horror film of all time. Period. I've seen it 40 times and I'll watch it 400 more. "If you'd have listened to me we wouldn't have had ta do THIS! We'd have been all set to go now instead of starting all over from SCRATCH! I TOLD ya not to tell her I told ya she wouldn't be open-MIIINDED!"

    Such a wonderful feeling for the lost world of middle class New York at midcentury!
