* KarmaHoudini: Tobin. Maybe. Fry takes a dive off the Statue of Liberty, most of the other conspirators were arrested, and the cops would presumably have scooped up Mrs. Sutton, but Tobin says the night before the bombing that he is leaving the country immediately.*

* StockFootage: A latter-day viewer might see the clip of the capsized ship and think that Fry succeeded in his mission. The shot actually shows the SS ''Normandie'', a RealLife ocean liner which really did catch fire and capsize in 1942. So Barry succeeded in stopping Fry from sinking the SS ''Alaska'', but Fry's smirk implies that his group was behind the earlier loss of the ''Normandie''.

* WholePlotReference: Let's just say that this film is more than a little bit similar to a previous Hitchcock film, ''Literature/TheThirtyNineSteps''.

The protagonist is Barry Kane (Robert Cummings), who works at an airplane factory in California when a friend of his is killed in an act of sabotage. While the law thinks he is responsible, Kane goes on a cross-country hunt for the real saboteur, a man named Fry. While on the run, Kane, in true Hitchcock fashion, gets involved with a sexy blonde (Priscilla Lane). He discovers that the fire at the airplane factory was caused by a group of Nazi-sympathizing fifth columnists, and that the saboteurs have more attacks planned.
