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.
