Middling Cold War Hitchcock features one of his starriest casts. Paul Newman plays a nuclear physicist who goes undercover in East Germany to recover a secret formula. Once behind the Iron Curtain, he and fiancee Julie Andrews have to get out alive. Just okay Hitchcock, but that’s better than most.
Torn Curtain marked the rupture of one of cinema’s most important collaborations, between director Alfred Hitchcock and composer Bernard Herrmann, who had done seven films together, including such classics as Vertigo (1958) and Psycho (1960).
