  • Read the Novel - Good Adaptation

    I found this movie so interesting, that I read the novel too. ("Conspirator" by Humphrey Slater)The novel is short so lends itself well to a film adaptation. The movie is quite faithful to the book. It's really not a "Red Scare" story as much as it really is about a conspirator - that seems to be the character's motivation more than belief in communism. He loved the intrigue more than communism, which makes the character and story even more interesting. Don't miss it! A good story and a good character study.

  • I did not care for the piece by TCM

    Whoever wrote this piece made an error by including Fox's The Iron Curtain in their list of red baiting examples. That film is an essentially correct piece of history that happened in Ottawa. Even the names have not been changed. Personally, I see nothing wrong with red baiting so-long as the film has merit on its own terms. I am not writing about being a social democrat or progressive. I am concerned about the unequal weight that communism, Russian and/or Stalin style, seems to have within our culture related to Nazi Germany. Much the same thing. Good intentions aside, the only real difference between the Germans and Russins, or Hitler and Stalin, is that Stalin was considerably more successful. Let us stop hammerring those who hammer our enemies.

  • Very Interesting and Intriguing Story

    One interesting point about Robert Taylor's character is that his childhood was spent in a household involved in the IRA. It appears to have left him with an addiction to intrigue and excitement. It's not so much his dedication to communism or resentment toward the English government but his ingrained love of intrigue. I don't even think of this movie as part of the "Red Scare" genre - it's a very interesting story and well acted by all. Highly recommended.

  • Enjoyable flick

    It wasn't a hit in its day, but it does have two great leads. And I love these kinds of stories, with political intrigue, on-location filming in Europe, a cold war plot, and top-notch MGM production values. I do think Taylor is a bit young to play his wife. She's supposed to be 18 (but was 16 during filming); and he's supposed to be 31 (but was 37). But it took experience as a lead actress that would prepare Liz for the big hits right around the corner, like A Place in the Sun. Still, it's a shame this film isn't more well-known and that it is not given credit for being a solid entertainment. It's worth a look.
