Watch Diplomatic Courier - Alternative Versions.
This is one of the best of the post-war intrigue/suspense flicks. What
all of these have in common is the gritty black-and-white look of
cities that haven't recovered from the war, usually in ruins, to
varying degrees. (Think The Third Man, The Search, Berlin Express)
There are no ruins in Diplomatic Courier, but you still get that
shadowy, melancholy, sinister, exotic atmosphere that marks the genre.
Others, who pick apart the "accuracy" or logic of certain parts of
Diplomatic Courier are pedantic prigs who don't know how to watch a
movie. Sure, there are a few lapses, but in such a fast-paced movie,
with so many plot points, it's amazing that the story holds together so
well. This is due, I think, to Henry Hathoway, one of the great line
directors of the studio system. Add the cinematography of the great
Lucien Ballard, and you have a handsome production.
As for the cast, who cares if Bogart would have been better? Tyrone
Power is, well, Tyrone Power. No, he's no Bogart, but who doesn't enjoy
just watching him? And he is one of the great action film stars. And we
have Patricia Neal, at her most beautiful and vampish, in that mink
coat for Ty Power to nestle his face in. I think the Power-Neal thing
is essential because it serves as a light-hearted counterpoint to the
severe, portentous relationship of Power-Neff.
And speaking of Hildegard Neff, I agree with a previous reviewer, that
this film showcases the talent and beauty of one of the finest
actresses that Hollywood ever trashed.
