1953. USA. Dir: Alfred Hitchcock. With Montgomery Clift, Anne Baxter. 95 min.
After a Catholic priest hears a confession of murder, he is accused by the police of the very same crime. Now he must decide between his devout oath of secrecy and his future as a free man. Hitchcock crafts a simmering, internalized take on the “innocent man accused” plot; though steeped in postwar psychology, this underrated work remains compelling and fresh.
