Torn Curtain


Hitchcock’s fiftieth film is a cold war spy thriller starring Newman as an American nuclear physicist who defects to East Germany and must escape with his fiancée (Julie Andrews), who is hidden in the midst of a Russian ballet company. Although widely considered uneven by Hitchcock’s standards, the film features some bravura sequences and a convincingly naturalistic performance by Newman.
