THE THIEF

Directed by Russell Rouse
United States, 1952
Crime, Thriller, Film noir

Synopsis

Interesting, but sometimes slow film about a nuclear physicist working in Washington DC who also spies for some unnamed foreign country. It does have a rather funny, patriotic/propagandist ending. It’s most interesting aspect is that it is filmed entirely without dialogue.
