This riveting wartime thriller stars Robert Cummings as Barry Kane, a Los Angeles aircraft factory worker who witnesses a Nazi agent firebombing his plant. However, it is Barry who is accused of the fiery sabotage, and to clear his name he sets off on a desperate, action-packed cross-country chase that takes him from Boulder Dam to New York's Radio City Music Hall to the top of the Statue of Liberty. Hitchcock's first film with an all-American cast moves with breakneck speed toward its final heart-pounding confrontation and it remains a suspense classic.

At that time Hitchcock, the British director known for his own style of suspense, was contracted to Selznick Studios, where only "David O. Selznick" films were able to see public exhibition... But Selznick was a good enough businessman to know the extra income by "lending" unhappy artists to other studios. He earned top gross money, whereas the contract actor just received a fraction of that.
The story is set in WW2, and is thought to put the viewer's attendance to enemies within their own society. Even high class members can be enemies to the US way of democratic society. The intention was to make a propaganda film, like many of the time from different countries with a similar undertone.
Watching the Hitchcock on the large movie screen lets you forget quite fast, what ist was made for. It becomes a fantastic story of suspense, tension and action.
The way the BD is mastered is great, the picture quality stunning. A must own.
