"[I]t remains a fine piece of entertainment, a swift and witty action adventure that helped to establish Hitchcock's international reputation."
Hitchcock's first version of this dramatic and complex tale of espionage, kidnapping, and family relationships. When a father intercepts a secret message of a murdered man, his daughter is subsequently kidnapped. Soon he and his wife -- a world-class sharpshooter -- become entangled with gangsters, cops, and murderers, as they struggle to understand and foil a nefarious plot.
