Ray Milland as Stephen Neale, a person that has just been released from a mental hospital has no idea of what fate has for him. Neale wants to return to England but has time to stop at a small town festival. He wins a cake after the psychic tells him what the weight of it is. Suddenly another man arrives and wants the cake because it seems that he and not Neale was meant for it. A spy ring is operating during WWII and supplying information for the Nazis. Neale takes a train and a blind man appears and rides with him. Unbeknown to Neale, this man is actually a spy and is not blind. Later on, there are false leads for Neale, a murder or murders depending on who Neale speaks to. Finally there are two strange woman, spies or innocent dupes? A fine performance from Milland and well worth the time to watch in this excellent film.
