Ex-Spanish Civil War POW Kit McKitrick (John Garfield) is investigating the death of his childhood pal. But the brutality he endured at the hands of his fascist captors has left more then physical scars.
Maureen O'Hara, playing an elusive beauty who knows more then she's telling, matches her cool elegance with Garfield's electric intensity in this highly regarded psychological thriller. As Kit careens from swank Manhattan soirees to covert Nazi spy nests, he discovers if he does have the guts to confront men who lie, torture and murder in the service of Germany's crazed Führer.
