Synopsis

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.

Description

An English couple on holiday in Switzerland find themselves embroiled in an international plot to assassinate a foreign dignitary when the husband overhears the secret and their daughter is kidnapped. This taut, suspenseful thriller is aided by the directorÆs wry wit and tight pacing. Critics continue to argue the filmÆs merits versus those of its 1956 remake.

Notes

An remake of this film was released in 1956, also directed by Alfred Hitchcock.
