Overview

Hitchcock spy thriller about a couple on holiday whose daughter is kidnapped when they discover an assassination plot. A terrific tale of espionage, blackmail and terror, The Man Who Knew Too Much takes in Switzerland and London’s East End with an edge-of-seat set piece in the Royal Albert Hall and a climax that evokes the Sidney Street Siege of 1911. Starring Peter Lorre as the dastardly kidnap ringleader.
