Saboteur Overview:

Saboteur (1942) was a Mystery - Thriller/Suspense Film directed by Alfred Hitchcock and produced by Frank Lloyd and Jack H. Skirball.

SYNOPSIS

Hitchcock's briskly paced wartime thriller was made famous by the unforgettable climax that has the film's villain dangling from the torch of the Statue of Liberty. An aircraft worker (Cummings) becomes a fugitive when he's falsely accused of sabotaging the factory where he works. On a cross-country chase to clear his name, he remains a step ahead of the police and a step behind the real culprit, who's part of a ring of Nazi spies. A fascinating, twisty tale penned by Parker, Harrison, and Viertel, with the action set in some of America's most recognizable locations, including Radio City Music Hall, Boulder Dam, and, of course, the Statue of Liberty.

Facts about

The shot of the ship on its side toward the end was an actual shot of the ocean liner SS Normandie, which had caught fire and capsized at its pier in New York. The fire was an accident, not sabotage (a cutting torch accidently set fire to some kapok life vests), though there were rumors of sabotage at the time.
In this film,there are brief appearances by Alfred Hitchcock (Man in front of drugstore) and Robert Mitchum early in his career (Passerby on stairs in the factory).
Originally, Barry Kane was to be named Barry Ford, Patricia Martin was Teddie Miller and Philip Martin was Edward Miller.
