Barry Kane, worker at the Los Angeles Airplane Factory, is framed for arson; he goes on the lam trying to find the real culprits, who are intent on sabotaging the war effort. Light Hitchcock thriller and very much a B-feature, which while entertaining, is too full of holes to be taken seriously.

Review by anonymous (posted on 15-Apr-2006)
This is one of my all time favorite
films. My favortie movie genre is WWII espionage. So this one fits the
bill. It was remade with Cary Grant as "North by Northwest" and also
directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The cinematography is really good. The
storyline moves along very fast and its full of real Americana
characters. I am not a regular fan of Bob Cummings but he is great in
this movie. So is Priscila Lane of the 3 Lane sisters. And who could
forget Norman Lloyd as he falls from the Statue of Liberty? I have this
movie on tape, no I have not switched my film library over to DVD yet.
I watch in a lot. It never bores me.
Do you know something we don't?
