Secret Agent

135. SECRET AGENT (1936-England). With Peter Lorre, Madeleine Carroll, John Gielgud, ROBERT YOUNG, Lilli PALMER. Directed by ALFRED HITCHCOCK. Based on a story by W. SOMERSET MAUGHAM. An army officer working for British Intelligence during WWI, Peter Lorre nearly steals the film as a homicidal virtuoso Robert Voting is delightfully miscast. Early Hitchcock feeling his directoral oats is superb. DonÕt miss the wrong man being shoved off a mountain top. . .priceless. 84 minutes. Hitchcock
