Genre: Action, Romance, Thriller | Director: Alfred Hitchcock

In 1940, Alfred Hitchcock made his official transition from the British film industry to Hollywood. And it was quite a year: his first two American movies, Rebecca and Foreign Correspondent, were both nominated for the best picture Oscar. Though Rebecca prevailed, Foreign Correspondent is the more quintessential Hitch film. A full-throttle espionage thriller, starring Joel McCrea as a green Yank reporter sent to Europe to get the scoop on the imminent war, it’s wall-to-wall witty repartee, head-spinning plot twists, and brilliantly mounted suspense set pieces, including an ocean plane crash climax with astonishing special effects. Foreign Correspondent deserves to be mentioned alongside The 39 Steps and North by Northwest as one of the master’s greatest adventures.

Gleichsam ist es ein archäologisches Verfahren, die gesellschaftliche Aufarbeitung des Nationalsozialismus. Es werden Schichten abgetragen, die in zunehmendem Maße Umfang und Tiefe des Terrorregimes fassbar machen. Es wird aber nicht nur die Herrschaft des Nationalsozialismus aufgedeckt, sondern auch das größte Hindernis im Abtragen der Schichten selbst, nämlich das Weiterwirken von Strukturen des NS-Regimes in Personen, in dominanten Einstellungen zu gesellschaftlichen und politischen Ordnungssystemen.
