In this film, aircraft plant worker Robert Cummings is accused of sabotaging his factory and causing the death of a co-worker. Actually, Cummings is the fall guy for a ring of Nazi spies, headed by an above-suspicion American philanthropist. Our hero goes on a cross-country chase after the genuine saboteur.

"[Saboteur] will keep audiences sitting upright."

— Age Staff, The Age (Australia)

"Like all Hitchcock films, Saboteur is excellently acted."

— Variety Staff, Variety

"Here again is Alfred Hitchcock the screen's supreme master of suspense."

— SMH Staff, Sydney Morning Herald

"Saboteur's ingredients are not uncommon, but Master Hitchcock deals them out in a sinister manner that makes them appear so."

— TIME Staff, TIME Magazine

"This film, Hitchcock's first contribution to wartime American propaganda, is as polished and suspenseful as any the great director would make."

— TV Guide Magazine

"Soldiers on patrol behind cafeteria workers, Fascist-sympathizing terrorists deeply embedded in small towns and big cities, and the chilling crackle of hectic radio warnings set a tone of ambient menace."

— Richard Brody, New Yorker

"For his first thriller set in America, from 1942, Alfred Hitchcock runs loopily through a gamut of genres, filming in a range of settings, from California to New York, to depict a country that lives in the image of its movies. His set pieces take on the blue-collar drama, the Western, the high-society mystery, the urban police story, and the circus melodrama, while capturing the paranoia of a country newly at war."
