Foreign Correspondent: A Good One #25
A criminal escapes through a sea of open umbrellas. The image of the tattered sail of a Dutch windmill is mirrored later in the image of a damaged wing of an airplane. A reporter clad only in a dressing gown touches the neon sign atop the Hotel Europe's roof causing it to now spell HOT EUROPE. A man plummets from the top of Cathedral Tower. To describe more would give away too much, but these are just a few of the memorable images found in Alfred Hitchcock's other Academy Award nominated film for Best Picture of 1941. Unfairly forgotten when compared to the Best Picture-winning Rebecca, it's still suspenseful and thrilling. On Netflix Instant Streaming.
