Powerhouse Indicator

Fritz Lang’s third wartime anti-Nazi film is an Alfred Hitchcock- type spy chase taken from a psychological novel by Graham Greene, with the psychology angle transferred mostly to physical threats — ticking clocks, a mystery cake, and German bombs in the Blitz. Ray Milland is cool and collected for a man just released from a mental asylum, and proves up to the task of defeating a Nazi conspiracy. With Marjorie Reynolds, Carl Esmond, Hillary Brooke, Dan Duryea, Alan Napier and Erskine Sanford. On Blu-ray from Powerhouse Indicator.
