House on 92nd Street
Directed by Henry Hathaway
The great Henry Hathaway (23 Paces to Baker Street) directed this classic film noir set in New York City during World War II - The House On 92nd Street is a riveting spy thriller. Reporting to FBI counterterrorist agent George Briggs (Lloyd Nolan, Somewhere in the Night), William Dietrich (William Eythe, Wing and a Prayer) becomes a double agent in order to infiltrate a cell of German spies gathering information about construction of the atom bomb. Hoping to identify its highest-level operatives, the FBI allows the spy ring to continue operations in their 92nd Street headquarters. As the Nazis close in on the bomb, the tension explodes in this gripping film! The great cast includes Signe Hasso (The Seventh Cross), Gene Lockhart (Meet John Dow) and Leo G. Carroll (Spellbound). Nominated for Best Original Screenplay (Charles G. Booth).
"The first American espionage film produced after World War II, Henry Hathaway’s The House on 92nd Street combines elements of documentary, melodrama, and film noir into a most unique cinematic creation."
"The KL Studio Classics Blu-ray of The House on 92nd Street is an immaculate scan and encoding of this fascinating picture."
