Though the film is one of Hitchcock's lesser known works, it is still nonetheless one of his greatest in my opinion. A surprisingly well crafted story for the unusually large number of writers who worked on this film, and it executes it with a great mix of visual imagery and subtle propaganda. It offers insight to the political and diplomatic tension of the time. And when viewed in the context of the era, and its underlying message, it's a pretty damn good propaganda film.
