VERDICT – 4/5

 

 
PROS –
1) An unwilling man accused of murder, trying to stop foreign spies from taking British military secret. In his run from London to Scotland, he is entangled between assassins, the police, and a woman.
2) It’s a classic prototype Hitchcock plot which can later be seen in many of his future movies including North by Northwest (1959).
3) An extremely influential movie in the spy-movie genre.
4) The astonishing twist of Mr. Memory being the medium of smuggling. The secrets are not being smuggled from a document, letter, a CD, or a flash drive. It’s the brilliant mind of Mr. Memory.

 

 

CONS –
N/A

 

QUOTE –

Mr. Memory: 63BC in the presence of Emperor Nero!
