This is a fast moving witty thriller that never lets up in its 130 minutes running time. The film is in beautiful Technicolor and Cary Grant gives the performance of a lifetime as Roger O.

""till the most nonstop fun the medium has ever produced. Somebody somewhere referred to it as the first James Bond movie, and while it's in some sense absurd to compare a professional secret agent out to save the world with an innocent ad exec just struggling to stay alive, there are enough superficial similarities to make one wish for a 007 adventure as consistently witty and blessedly lull-free." - Mike D'Angelo"
