Stars: Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, James Mason

A business man is mistaken for a spy, and enemy agents then try to kill him because he knows too much

A 2000 MILE CHASE … That blazes a trail of TERROR to a gripping, spine-chilling climax !

Reviews (1)

Delightful chase comedy-thriller with a touch of sex, a kind of compendium of the director’s best work, with memories of The 39 Steps, Saboteur and Foreign Correspondent among others. (Halliwell’s)
