  1. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Secret Agent

    Barnet was an essentially comic director who could knock out a fine dramatic feature when he had to. One rarely feels his total engagement to these sorts of films, but hard to deny their expertise. I wonder if he'd had a chance to see any American films at war's end, because this suspenseful cloak-and-dagger flick is "Hitchcockian" indeed. As in DARK IS THE NIGHT, Barnet casts himself as a sadistic Nazi officer.
