Dir: Alfred Hitchcock
Starring: Oscar Homolka and Sylvia Sidney
The proprietor of a London cinema leads a double life as a secret agent
This espionage thriller in the typical Hitchcock style features a scene set on the London Underground at ‘High Street’ station. This was in actual fact part of a huge studio set that was constructed in Northolt. Some London trams are visible and these, along with buses, were the genuine articles brought in by road for filming. The film was based on the 1907 novel The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad.
