Trivia

Crawford always said she wished Hitchcock had directed this film. And indeed, the film contains many "Hitchcockian" touches (mistaken identity, music as a plot cue, innocents recruited to do dangerous tasks, etc.) See more »

Above Suspecion is an Excellent piece of intrigue, fun and entertainment
9 August 2006 | by (Islamic Republic of Iran) – See all my reviews

Those wonderful movies of the past. The film's setting is in the days prior to the outbreak of the Second World War. Although it would have been highly unlikely that British Intelligence would have asked two non-Britishers and non-professionals to do a bit of spying for them which could turn very dangerous for them and give the whole thing away plus creating an international scandal (the World War had not yet started), yet it is always interesting to see how it would have developed. Good slick direction by Mr. Thorpe, excellent acting by Mr. McMurray and specially by Miss Crawford, excellent set design which does not forget the overcoats needed on the Brenner Pass between Austria (in the Film the country is called Southern Germany) and Itally (which did not get into the War until 1940). Good to see two decent people doing the right thing for the right cause endangering their own lives to get away from the Nazi and back to safety. Good work and fun to watch and don't forget the inimitable Mr. Veidt. He should have been in Hollywood a decade earlier.
