No spoiler boxes necessary, since it’s such an old (1935) movie.
Just saw this early Alfred Hitchcock movie for the first time in about 15 years, and enjoyed it all over again. A good dark comedy/romance/espionage thriller. I have a few questions, though:
When Annabella Smith, the agent whom Hannay takes home, is stabbed and killed, why wouldn’t the bad guys just have killed Hannay in his sleep, as well?
Why did Smith intend to go to a particular village in Scotland, since that is exactly where the top bad guy (the professor with the missing fingertip) lives? DId she intend to go there to stop him, somehow?
When Hannay is on the train heading to Scotland, two men share a compartment with him. Try as I might, I couldn’t understand what they were saying (one shows the other the lingerie which is apparently his stock-in-trade as a traveling salesman, and they chat).
