Escape in the Fog is a 1945 American film noir directed by Budd Boetticher. The drama features Otto Kruger and Nina Foch.[1]


During World War II, a San Francisco nurse dreams of a murder and then meets the "victim" in real life. What she saw in the dream helps her in an effort to thwart enemy spies.



Critical response[edit]

Film critic Jeremy Arnold gave the film a mixed review, writing, "Although Wright and Foch have the most screen time, top billing goes to Otto Kruger, the immensely enjoyable character actor who specialized in charming, urbane villains. He's fine as always here but doesn't get much to do. William Wright was an unremarkable actor who appeared almost entirely in B movies in a 45-film career that spanned the 1940s."[2]
