Barry Kane is a Los Angeles aircraft factory worker who witnesses a Nazi agent firebombing his plant. However, it is Barry who is accused of the fiery sabotage, and to clear his name he sets off on a desperate, action-packed cross-country chase that takes him from Boulder Dam to New York's Radio City Music Hall to the top of the Statue of Liberty. Hitchcock's first film with an all-American cast moves with breakneck speed toward its final heart-pounding confrontation, and remains a suspense classic.

Amazing film, gripping and classic hitchcock suspense. Underrated.

"Saboteur", 1942, reportedly was Hitchcock's first totally American actors movie. I believe it. To watch it without saying at least one "are you kidding me?" is impossible. Hitchcock was obsessed with blond women and cast one whenever possible. IN this film Priscilla Lane given billing over Robert Cummings, even though he is the real point of focus throughout the whole film. You couldn't make this film today with all the political correctness involved. Imagine a circus wagon full of 'freaks' being the backdrop for the movie? And the blind man living in the country side but able to hear the handcuffs tinkling on Barry Kane? And the truck driver helping distract the police so that Barry can escape? There is one particular scene where Priscilla is featured on a highway billboard that advertises 'funerals starting at $49.50'? But this is 1942 and America is in WWII and everyone desperately wants entertainment. What better is it to see ourselves battling and winning over Nazi's in our homeland. Hitchock manages to slip in the scene on the Statue of Liberty for outlandish photography. But the film is still enjoyable.
