"I Confess," set in Montreal and starring Montgomery Clift and Anne Baxter, is not one of Hitchcock's finest, but it's still worthy of your entertainment time. The musical score is rather lugubrious but the plot does move along. Clift presents his trademark longsuffering, noble look throughout, resisting the passionate entreaties of Baxter.
Unfortunately, the murderer with his accent somehow reminded me of Bruno Hauptmann, the German immigrant who may have been falsely accused of the Baby Lindbergh murder. (I 'm not giving away the plot; the opening scene reveals who commit the crime.) I don't accuse Hitchcock of national bias, though, as many of his villains are accentless Americans in other films.
A young Karl Malden turns in a fine performance as a detective, part of the strong supporting cast. There are some good scenes of the beautiful capital of Quebec. Recommended.
