The Fallen Sparrow is a wonderful thriller that leaves the viewer guessing right up to the final minutes. John Garfield returns to the US after having escaped from a Franco concentration camp where he was tortured and drugged. Despite being home, he is not free. Psychological warfare, drugs, sadistic murders and beautiful women. All the ingredients for a top film.
