Saboteur is a classic thriller movie from 1942. Directed by the legendary Alfred Hitchcock, this film stars Priscilla Lane, Robert Cummings, and Otto Kruger. The story of Saboteur follows the life of Barry Kane (played by Robert Cummings) who is wrongly accused of starting a fire in a defense factory that kills his best friend. While trying to prove his innocence, he finds himself amidst a group of Nazi sympathizers who are plotting to blow up important targets in New York City.

The film opens with an explosion in a defense factory, which is blamed on Kane by a suspicious investigator. Kane escapes from the factory and then goes on the run from the law, trying to find the real culprit. Along the way, he meets Patricia Martin (played by Priscilla Lane), who initially believes him to be guilty but eventually becomes his ally.

As Kane and Martin travel across the country, they uncover a web of espionage and sabotage that is being led by a charismatic leader, Charles Tobin (played by Otto Kruger). Tobin is a cunning and ruthless man who is determined to carry out his plan to destroy important landmarks in New York.

Kane and Martin's investigation takes them to different places, dance halls, a Soda pop factory, mount Rushmore and some other important landmarks, as they try to gather evidence to prove Kane's innocence and stop Tobin's plan. Throughout the film, the duo faces multiple challenges and close calls, but ultimately, they are able to outsmart Tobin and his cohorts, with the help of some unlikely allies who they meet along the way.

The movie features Hitchcock's trademark suspenseful moments and his masterful use of camera angles and lighting to heighten the tension. Robert Cummings delivers an excellent performance as the charming and resourceful Kane, while Priscilla Lane brings a sense of wit and intelligence to the character of Martin.

Overall, Saboteur is an exciting and engaging movie that combines elements of action, adventure, and mystery, all woven together with the thread of patriotism. The movie is a testament to Hitchcock's genius as a director and his ability to create compelling stories and unforgettable characters.
