I See a Dark Stranger ★★★ The Adventuress 1946

Cynical yet whimsical postwar British spy thriller about an angry Irish lass who agrees to steal war plans for the Nazis in order to battle her native enemies, the British—then she falls in love with a British officer. A sharply performed, decidedly jaded view of nationalism and wartime “heroism.” 112m/B VHS, DVD . GB Deborah Kerr, Trevor Howard, Raymond Huntley; D: Frank Launder.
