Audience Reviews for The House on 92nd Street


Docu-drama film-noir of the FBI's efforts in the 40's. Bill Dietrich (Eythe) becomes a double agent for the FBI. His task is to infiltrate a Nazi spy ring. The film believably carries out the style of a documentary. Nice twist at the end.

This is from the fox Film Noir Collection and is a semi documentary film, shows the FBI at work in those early days of the European conflict. Henry Hathaway, the director, focus on the work behind the scenes of a group of German spies, operating in New York and how the FBI is able to infiltrate the group. If your into Film Noir and ole school black and white you might enjoy it. I can only muster up 2 1/2 Stars on this one

Boring, confusing, I didn't get it. I usually like film noir, but I didn't like this movie.
