Plot Summary

Emily Crane is fired after refusing to give names to a 1951 House Un-American Activities Committee, and takes a part-time job as companion to an old lady. One day her attention is drawn to a noisy argument being conducted largely in German in a neighbouring house, the more so since one of those involved is her main senator prosecutor. Starting to look into things, she gradually enlists the help of FBI officer Cochran who was initially detailed to check her out. Just as well when things turn nasty. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia During the scene in the used book store while Emily is talking to Stefan in the shelf behind her one can clearly identify three volumes of Negley Farson's autobiography "The Way of a Transgressor". Farson, after having been expelled from Andover, became a foreign correspondent and actually met Hitler in person. This should not be taken as a coincidence for Emily is kind of a transgressor herself, and the Nazis play quite a role in the movie. See more »
Goofs In one scene, Emily overhears The Women in the House character (who is off-screen) speaking to one of the Russians through an interpreter. The Woman is telling the Russian that they will leave for Chicago "tomorrow." The interpreter mistakenly says "tomorrow" in English and then corrects himself mid-word to the correct Russian word "zaftra." See more »
