Night Boat to Dublin

Night Boat to Dublin

Lawrence Huntington (1946)



Our Score
This B-thriller is worth seeing for its treatment of a topical theme - atomic weapons - and the performance of Robert Newton, then on the cusp of stardom. (He was shortly to play a chilling Bill Sikes in David Lean's Oliver Twist.) Newton plays a British Secret Service agent who travels to Dublin, where a Swedish scientist is giving atomic secrets to the Nazis. Hitchcock also realised the dramatic potential of the A-bomb in Notorious, but this isn't in the same league.


A team of Allied special operatives is sent on a daring mission to rescue a Swedish atomic scientist. Second World War spy thriller, starring Robert Newton and Raymond Lovell.
