I'm with those people over there. They're much duller than you are. But they got far better manners so I have to lie like the dickens. Especially that one guy! He's the captain. He thinks he is a mate of mine. You know the kind. So I have to be nice to him. Darling, can you wait two minutes?
Well... I hardly can. I'm going to, darling.

Diplomatic Courier-Cloak & Dagger At its Best ***1/2
Wonderful Tyrone Power vehicle that will have you guessing every minute along the way.
When Power is assigned to deliver important papers, the person who is to receive them can't retrieve them and is eventually murdered. Suspicion centers on Hildegarde Knef, who does quite well in this film.
Patricia Neal is in fine form as a wealthy looking widow of an official who comes along and tries to romance Power along the way. What else is this conniving woman up to?
Diplomatic intrigue hasn't been this good in years. Power is sympathetic and will rescue Neff at the end when it appears that she has been truthful to him throughout the film.
