A wonderfully exciting political thriller and Hitchcock’s contribution to American World War II propaganda, this 1942 film is about Barry Kane (Robert Cummings, Dial M for Murder), an aircraft plant worker who is accused of starting a fire that causes the death of a coworker. But is he really at fault? In classic Hitchcockian “Wrong Man” fashion, Kane goes on a cross-country chase after the person he believes to be the genuine saboteur, a man named Fry (Norman Lloyd, Spellbound), setting up the famous climax: a race to the top of the Statue of Liberty.
