DANA ANDREWS & MÄRTA TORÉN COVER 'ASSIGNMENT: PARIS'

Märta Torén in Assignment: Paris Year: 1952 Rates: ***1/2

George Sanders, the classy Brit who all but stole Alfred Hitchcock's FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT despite being third billed, is number three again and has plenty of time to stand out in act three...

When mainline Dana Andrews, again playing a reporter like in another correspondent, BERLIN CORRESPONDENT, gets captured illegally, held hostage and whose enemies, in this case communist Yugo, winds up altering his voice, another BERLIN trait only more realistic as it's a far better picture...

And while the thrills aren't extremely thrilling there's a good use of suspense when needed... 

Plus romance as Andrews puts on his kind of breezy, second-hand charm from the 1950's when, during this Lost Decade of drinking, he'd phone in some performances, even in good films and also, good performances, as ASSIGNMENT: PARIS is and has... also starring love-interest ingenue Märta Torén, who co-starred with Dana in SWORD IN THE DESERT, and underused Noir starlet Audrey Totter, brooding around the Paris newspaper office jealous about Torén, two-fold.
