Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. John Gielgud, Peter Lorre, Madeleine Carroll, Robert Young, Lillie Palmer, dir: Alfred Hitchcock; Gaumont British Corp. Very minor wear, about fine.

Based on a Campbell Dixon play and Somerset Maugham novel, Hitchcock and his writers brought to the screen a brilliant tale of mystery and thrills, tinged with comedy and romance, presented in a style all his own. The story is about three British agents assigned to assassinate a German spy during WWI. Two of them suffer problems when the mission conflicts with their consciences.

This still is for US release of the British Gaumont film. In still coded “A-59-60” are John Gielgud and Peter Lorre.
