Director: Alfred Hitchcock

UK, 1936

Run Time: 76 minutes, Certificate: PG,
Genre: Mystry, Thriller, Language: English


Hitchcock's British reputation peaked with his Gaumont-British and Gainsborough thrillers. Joseph Conrad's novel The Secret Agent provided the source for this chilling tale about a London family torn apart by anarchist activities. Hitch brilliantly manipulates the suspense, changing Verloc's profession from tobacconist to cinema owner and drenching scenes with the sights and sounds of ordinary London. Strong performances from Oskar Homolka and Sylvia Sidney.

Average score 5.9
