Foreign Correspondent is a classic film directed by the legendary Alfred Hitchcock. It is the story of an up-and-coming reporter, John Jones (Joel McCrea), who is sent to Europe to investigate all the turmoil surrounding the region. Nazi Germany is rising in power quickly, and there are few answers coming from any of the established correspondents. Jones' first assignment is to nail down a story on Stephen Fisher (Herbert Marshall), who is the head of the Universal Peace Party. He attempts to make first contact with Fisher at an event honoring the famed Dutch diplomant, Van Meer (Albert Bassermann). By chance, Jones meets Van Meer before the party, but it is later announced that Van Meer was unable to attend the party because he had to attend a conference in Amsterdam. The famed diplomat is assassinated at the conference, but Jones later finds out that Van Meer is still alive and the dead man was an impostor. The plucky reporter has unwittingly stumbled upon a deep-rooted conspiracy that involves many high-powered officials from all over Europe. Foreign Correspondent delivers classic Hitchcock suspense on themes of international espionage and impending world war.
