I See a Dark Stranger

  • Film

Time Out says

A briskly entertaining (if ideologically cosy) espionage thriller set during World War II, with Kerr as an Irish colleen brought up on her father's tales of his exploits against the wicked English. Setting out to join the IRA but sidetracked into innocently spying for the Nazis in Dublin, she is run ragged all over the place - including the Isle of Man - before suffering a change of heart when she falls for a British officer (Howard). Rather too whimsical, but littered with engagingly Hitchcockian conceits like the disposal of a corpse by taking it for a stroll in a wheelchair.
