A dominant theme in director Alfred Hitchcock films is that of men thrown into extreme situations by being mistaken for someone else. In I Confess, Montgomery Clift plays a Catholic priest who hears a confession of murder. Bound by his faith, he is unable to reveal what he has heard - even when, due to circumstantial evidence, he is put in the frame and faces a possible death sentence. I Confess is, like the later The Wrong Man, one of Hitchcock's more serious, naturalistic films, but it still contains plenty of suspense and moments of dark humour.
Hitchcock directs this noir-ish drama, based on a true story about a nightclub musician who is wrongly accused of robbing an insurance company.
