Penelope Ann Miller,
Emily Crane is fired after refusing to give names to a 1951 House Un-American Activities Committee, and takes a part-time job as companion to an old lady. One day her attention is drawn to a noisy argument being conducted largely in German in a neighbouring house, the more so since one of those involved is her main senator prosecutor. Starting to look into things, she gradually enlists the help of FBI officer Cochran who was initially detailed to check her out. Just as well when things turn nasty. Written by

Doesn't feel cold to me.
That's because where you come from, twenty below's a heat wave.
At least where I come from, the people aren't colder than the weather. It's a dry cold, not like here. Doesn't feel the same.
Yeah, till your nose drops off. I'm putting on the heat.

The film has good pace, and excellent photography, and is very much in the style of Hitchcock even to the music which, at times, one feels was almost written by Bernard Herrmann. A simple story perfectly developed, with an economical and sharp script.
