I was wondering if Lake was really that short compared to Tone, but I see at IMDb that Lake was just a bit over 5 feet.

That is why Alan Ladd liked working with her in the films they made together because he wasn't very tall. Most sources listed him at about 5' 6".
According to Sophia Loren, when she was making Boy On A Dolphin with Ladd, they had to dig a hole for her stand in when she did her scenes with him so she wouldn't tower over him. In her prime, Sophia was 5'9".

THE HOUR BEFORE THE DAWN (1944)
• Brand New HD Master – From a 2K Scan of the 35mm Fine Grain
• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian Paul Talbot
• Theatrical Trailer (Newly Mastered in 2K)
• Limited Edition O-Card Slipcase
• Optional English Subtitles

B&W 74 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
Based on the novel by W. Somerset Maugham (Of Human Bondage) and made at the height of the Second World War, The Hour Before the Dawn stars Franchot Tone (Five Graves to Cairo) as Jim Hetherton, a pacifist Englishman who becomes a conscientious objector at the onset of WWII. The sultry Veronica Lake (So Proudly We Hail) plays Dora Bruckmann, the beautiful Austrian refugee whom Jim marries. But what neither he nor anyone else suspects is that Dora is actually an agent planted by the Nazis, and her main concern is finding the location of a secret airfield in the vicinity of the Hetherton estate in order to help Hitler’s planned invasion. By preying on his beliefs, Dora manages to manipulate Jim into potentially betraying his country. Billed as “a story of turbulent emotions, exciting times, impassioned love…and a sinister, deadly secret,” The Hour Before the Dawn was directed by Frank Tuttle (Lucky Jordan, This Gun for Hire), shot by John F. Seitz (The Lost Weekend) and scored by Miklós Rózsa (Secret Beyond the Door).

What do people think about this one? Some of the WWII films have intriguing premises but don't really deliver imo (e.g., Passage to Marseilles). I'm interested in this but have no familiarity with it.

Is the CHASE base on Woolrich's "Black Path of Fear"?
Plots sounds about the same.
On SUSPENSE Brian Donlevy(1944) and Cary Grant(1946) did radio plays of "Black Path of Fear".

New cast-mate Hector Elizondo (Dr. Neven Bell) as Monk’s new shrink, replaces the great Stanley Kamel (Dr. Charles Kroger) who passed away in 2008. Joining Monk and cast of other regulars (Traylor Howard, Ted Levine, Jason Gray-Stanford) are the phenomenal guest stars Bob Costas, Brad Garrett, Robert Loggia, Eric McCormack, Joanna Pacula, Evan Peters, Gena Rowlands, Sarah Silverman, David Strathairn, John Turturro, Casper Van Dien, Bradley Whitford, Steve Zahn and many more in 16 hilarious, unforgettable episodes—including the star-studded 100th episode, Mr. Monk’s 100th Case! Despite his overwhelming fear of germs, crowds, small places and almost everything else, Monk proves once again why he’s TV’s top super-sleuth and why mystery lovers “can’t deny how amusing it all still is” (Entertainment Weekly).
