he knew she did not
this is one of our great suspense novels by Hitchcock, this movie is one of our top movies of the 60's and it is a movie all will enjoy watching with a loved one, or family. Newman was sent to find out how much the enemy knew about he the bomb, and they did know a lot, but his fiancé did not know what he was doing, and when she finds out, she loves him more, this was combined with a love story.

A MINOR HITCHCOCK IS STILL A HITCHCOCK
Hitchcocks underrated spy thiller is still a Hitchcock, it's like a minor Van Gogh,you still want it in your house. This version has in it's Special Features a portion of scenes that the great Bernarn Herman's music were edited to and this Movie would be much farther up most lists without the John Addison score
