Alfred Hitchcock’s exciting 1942 wartime thriller stars Robert Cummings as a Los Angeles aircraft factory worker who witnesses his plant’s firebombing by a Nazi agent. During the deadly explosion, Cumming’s best friend is killed and he, himself, is wrongly accused of sabotage.

Synopsis

A forerunner to "North by Northwest," "Saboteur" is the story of a man falsely accused of espionage who is forced to find the true leader of a spy ring. Well-known for its famous climactic clash on the Statue of Liberty, the film carries themes later explored deeply in other Hitchcock films. The loner hero escapes and races across famous sites searching for proof of his innocence. In this time of danger, he links up with an independent woman who reluctantly helps him. The smooth villain, an anti-American arsonist/murderer, is more compelling than the romantic leads. The film is a series of explosive scenes, as the hero approaches the inner circle of agents. Among the hairpin plot twists and near misses, there are also subtleties in the story. For example, the lovers seek refuge in a train car filled with circus misfits and they are often most vulnerable in apparently safe places.

Description

Cummings stars as a man unjustly accused of sabotaging an American airplane factory in Glendale, California during WWII. He escapes the police by a daring jump off a bridge and sets out in pursuit of the real criminal. Full of quirky characters and plot surprises, this forerunner of "The Fugitive" is a Hitchcock gem famous for the climax atop the Statue of Liberty.
