In 1939, the Editor of the New York Daily Globe sends Haverstock (Joel McCrea), a crime reporter, into Europe in the hope of getting a fresh angle. Naive and wholly ignorant of international affairs, Haverstock launches himself eagerly onto the London scene, where he meets and falls in love with Carol Fisher, whose father heads an important peace organisation. Before long, Haverstock witnesses the assassination of a Dutch diplomat at terrifying close hand. Hot on the trail of the killer, he soon finds himself deeply embroiled in the evil workings of an international spy ring. With its unforgettable set pieces and non-stop pace, Foreign Correspondent is one of Alfred Hitchcock's most thrilling entertainments.
