The House on 92nd Street
First movie to be shot on location. First movie to refer to the atomic bomb. Dozens of patents for advance, more mobile camera and sound equipment. First time the public could see the inner workings of the FBI. Starred Lloyd Nolan and a cast of "Victory" actors.
The movie deals with the theft by German spies of the fictional "Process 97", a secret formula which, the narrator tells us, "was crucial to the development of the atomic bomb."

Rallynow, certainly a classic for thoe reasons, though I feel some of the others are "better" all round films.

I agree, there are much better ones. In fact there is some debate that it is a true Film Noir.
