Without a word to his wife, he flees the hotel the couple is staying in and boards a ship, only to find, after the ship sails, that the agents have followed him. Let me first address the credits-I'm willing to believe the quote from Welles that he did not direct nor write this movie but simply produced with Norman Foster helming and Cotten himself adapting the screenplay from an Eric Ambler novel.
But the beginning pre-credit sequence and some dialogue exchanges certainly have a Wellesian flavor. Overall, while there are indeed some talky sequences that don't always move the story along, there's nothing boring about any of them especially considering the short running time for a major studio A-picture, anyway.
I especially liked Frank Readick's performance as Mathews-a cockney socialist-especially near the end when he says some radical things in front of his wife Moorehead to hide something he's planning with Cotten's Howard Graham. Also good is Jack Moss as silent heavyset gunman Peter Banat who's trying to kill Howard because of his occupation. This was Readick and Moss's only film appearance and they were both excellent with what they did with it. Cotten himself is fine as Howard constantly tries to avoid getting killed as he goes on ship before the showdown at the hotel parapet.

And Welles deliciously chews the scenery as Colonel Haki with whatever foreign accent he chose for his role. If there were some disappointments, well, Ms. Moorehead didn't do much in her role and neither did Ruth Warrick as Howard's wife Stephanie. And, yes, there could have been some cut scenes that could have explained some sequences clearer.
Still, I loved the atmosphere that was conveyed throughout and the finale chase was very exciting. So on that note, I highly recommend Journey Into Fear.
