Conspirator is a highly fanciful treatment of an obvious anti-Commie character.

In the unfolding of the major theme the story lacks dramatic intensity, and little effort is made to justify the action of the central character, Maj. Michael Curragh, an officer in the Guards, who passes on highly secret military information to ‘the Party’. The conflict, both emotional and mental, with his newly-acquired young wife fails to reach the heights, and throughout the development there is neither powerful drama nor lurid melodrama.

It is effectively mounted; there are some fine settings.

Robert Taylor gets to grips with the starring role but the script doesn’t allow wide scope and restricts his performance within a limited frame. Elizabeth Taylor comes out with flying colors.
