This was ok. I felt the villain in this film would have been a little more cautious with his actions. For a nazi who was able to hide for so long, his actions were impulsive and not calculative. I also found that the sharpness of the blade on the clock tower remarkably sharp for a statue. Interesting story, but the end was overdramatized.

This is a 1946 American film noir directed by Orson Welles.
It was the third feature film completed by Welles as a director.
A war crimes investigator tracks a high-ranking Nazi fugitive to a New England town.
It is quite suspenseful, but the villain seems more like a psychopath than a political fugitive.
