A good movie

Since I have always been a huge fan of Alfred Hitchock’s work, of course, I was really eager to check this flick . Eventually, it wasn’t one of his most famous movies and it was definitely not one of my favorite but it was still a pretty good picture. In fact, even though the plot was taking place in Great Britain, it was Hitchock’s 2nd Hollywood feature after ‘Rebecca’ and it was in fac... read more

Hitchcock's classic thriller stars Joel McCrea as Johnny Jones, a naïve New York reporter sent on assignment to Europe on the eve of World War II. Amidst the volatile atmosphere of the impending war, Jones stumbles on a deadly conspiracy devised by Stephen Fisher (Herbert Marshall), whose spy ring masquerades as a peace organization. Fisher's daughter Carol (Laraine Day) lends a hand as Jones races to expose the story -- and tries to stay alive.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- February 2018 (33 movies items)

" TubiTV- 2hrs. First Viewing It takes a few minutes for Foreign Correspondent's power to kick in, it has a rather slow opening, but once the film hits the windmill setpiece, it quickly becomes and engrossing spy-thriller, as well as a tribute to the reporters that informed the world of Europe's troubles on the eve of WWII. The cast is exceptional, the writing economic, and the direction taut; it's strong story told with a great deal of flair, and Hitch's usual mastery of suspense. Monthly Wesl"

" Hitchcock spy thriller is excellent with one effective plane crash set piece and wonderful atmospheric moments like the abandoned windmill. The assassination sequence is also excellent. Downbeat ending that also predicted the bombing of London by a few days. "
