Directed by Orson Welles
Although I didn't enjoy this film as much as The Magnificent Ambersons, this is actually entertaining. For one thing, it is a thriller and has a pretty interesting storyline. A Nazi war criminal is in hiding and it is up to Edward Robinson to crack the case before it is too late...DAH DAH DAH!
Orson Welles is a great actor, a talent that is often overlooked in favor of his amazing directing skills. Roger Ebert has stated that one of his favorite scenes in cinema is when Welles is standing in the doorway. All right, that may be going a bit overboard in my opinion, but it is still a great scene.
It always surprises me how versatile Orson Welles is whether he is doing a thriller, a comedy, or a biodrama, his directing and acting is always done artfully. Check it out; way more surprising than modern thrillers.
Orson Welles stated this is the least favorite of his films.
One of the first movies to show images of concentration camps.
