" Paul Newman and Julie Andrews seemed oddly mixed matched but they worked quite well together in this film. This is not one of Hitchcock's more praise worthy titles. Still, it was good timing to catch-up on one of the rare films of his that I haven't seen."

Alfred Hitchcock Films - Ranked (53 movies items)

"After the disappointment of Marine, Torn Curtain actually took me by surprise, especially considering I've heard many negative things about it. From the bat, the films doesn't feel like Hitchcock, but rather James Bond, but the familiar Hitchcockisms do come through later on leading to some very memorable moments. Newman's acting tends to be stale at times, but Andrews shines throughout. 8/10."

Alfred Hitchcock's Movie Cameos (37 movies items)

"Holding a baby in a hotel lobby, Hitchcock sticks out in this espionage thriller like, well, a famous movie director holding a baby in a hotel lobby. The joyous cheesiness of the cameo is enhanced by the score's bigtop-style trombone wheeze. If you missed this one, you'd need your eyes and ears examined. "

"Unfortunately, unlike the poster suggests, it did not tear me apart with suspense. Other than the decent murder scene (one of Hitch's most famous scenes), this was a so-so thriller. Great cinematography and shots boosts this up to 4 stars. "

Mustanaamio7's Movie Diary - Year 2010 (649 movies items)

"10.5. 2010 There's at least one scene worth mentioning in Alfred Hitchcock's problematic Cold-War era thriller "Torn Curtain": an enemy agent is killed by stuffing his head in an oven. It is one of the most gruesome scenes in Hitchcock's work and it is also realistic scene in a sense because it proves that killing a human being in real life may often require really dirty tricks. Other than that, there's nothing too unique to offer for an experienced viewer. The movie is often understandably co"
