Alfred Hitchcock's Foreign Correspondent was an extension of his work on The 39 Steps and The Lady Vanishes -- but this time out, he was working in Hollywood with top American (and British) talent at his disposal. The result was his first international-scale thriller, carrying us across the Atlantic with a hapless hero (Joel McCrea) trying to stay in front of a glib-tongued spy-master (Herbert Marshall), all of it strangely anticipatory of the director's North By Northwest (right down to the hero's juggling a couple of names).
