Cloak and Dagger 1946
American physicist Professor Alvah Jesper (GARY COOPER) is parachuted into war-torn Nazi Germany to obtain military secrets. But the deeper he probes, the deadlier his mission becomes… especially when his involvement with the beautiful and mysterious Gina (LILLI PALMER) catapults him into an intense maelstrom of danger, betrayal and murder.

A more perfectly titled film would be difficult to imagine, as Cloak and Dagger is a consummate wartime espionage suspense picture, and an intriguing mixture of genres for Lang: part spy thriller, part romantic melodrama, and part patriotic war movie, Cloak and Dagger is another triumph among Lang's U.S. features, and an expert exercise in genre fusion that's ripe for rediscovery.
