Stack 3 position 1: spine 649.

There's another Fritz Lang movie in the stack and it's sort of my most dreaded roll. So I was happy to see this hit the player instead. As it turns out, Dr. Mabuse might have been more interesting even though it's a silent. This one plays out like a run of the mill wartime thriller with Ray Milland accidenting his way into a Nazi plot. It felt like Hitchcock lite to me, maybe most notable for precursors of much better noirs to come with Dan Duryea in a very small part.
