The inn's service is rude, even quarrelsome. Is this any way to treat a guest who is the most respected Shakespearean of his day? It is if you're part of a theatrical group posing as innkeepers and trying to give the renowned but pompous David Garrick his comeuppance. Garrick, however, is aware of the ruse. And he's convinced that the young, recently arrived countess who seems to be falling in love with him is the worst actress of the bunch. But that's where the great one goes wrong: She's not part of the troupe at all.

A hapless hero tries to stay in front of a glib-tongued spy-master.
Alfred Hitchcock's Foreign Correspondent was an extension of his work on The 39 Steps and The Lady Vanishes -- but this time out, he was working in Hollywood with top American (and British) talent at his disposal. The result was his first international-scale thriller, carrying us across the Atlantic with a hapless hero (Joel McCrea) trying to stay in front of a glib-tongued spy-master (Herbert Marshall), all of it strangely anticipatory of the director's North By Northwest (right down to the hero's juggling a couple of names).
