Audience Reviews for I See a Dark Stranger (The Adventuress)
I See A Dark Stranger (1945) Sidney Gilliat, Wolfgang Wilhelm and Frank Launder made a great post-war/spy movie that also pokes a little fun at the Irish. A head-strong young Irish woman Bridie Quilty (Deborah Kerr), growing up hearing the stories of the Irish Republican Army, leaves town to join the IRA herself. She meets up with a Nazi spy, Miller (Raymond Huntley) who has her doing reconnaissance work to break a fellow spy out of prison, who has valuable plans of the D Day invasion. She also needs to occupy the time of a British soldier, David Bynes (Trevor Howard) who is suspected of being military intelligence. Lt. Bynes is actually in town doing his thesis about Cromwell, which pushes Bridie's Anti-British buttons to the max. Somehow, they are attracted to each other through all of their travels.
Not great, but a good spy movie with romance and danger, but not enough excitement.
