4.0 out of 5 stars Hartley Haverstock - another great Hitchcock name, 6 Oct. 2013
By 
This review is from: Foreign Correspondent [DVD] [1940] (DVD)
Its reputation seems to have declined somewhat over the years but it seems to be the link between The 39 Steps and North By Northwest - the three great Hitchcock chase films. Clever, suggestive dialogue; an urbane enemy; a McGuffin no one needs to care about but is about world domination in one way or another; a grand climax, guns and chases. Always interesting and benefiting from three, to my mind, class leading men in Joel McCrea,George Sanders and Herbert Marshall. Also Robert Benchley as an amusing reformed drunk, Stebbins. I'm not sure about Laraine Day - there's not the amusing by-play of Robert Donat and Madeleine Carroll or the highly charged scenes of Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint - perhaps that's what it lacks.
