One of Hitchcock's less esteemed efforts, Torn Curtain finds movie stars Paul Newman and Julie Andrews in a Cold War thriller. Andrews finds information that suggests her fiancé Newman, playing a top American physicist, will defect to East Germany. He's actually on a spy mission to collect scientific information on Soviet missile capability.
