The film's director, producer, and one of the writers had worked previously on another spy film for the same movie studio (20th Century Fox) called The House on 92nd Street (1945) (aka Now It Can Be Told (USA)). Interestingly, both films utilized street addresses as their film titles. See more »

Prologue, shown printed in a book: No single story could ever pay full tribute to the accomplishments of the U.S. Army Intelligence in World War II. Working secretly behind enemy lines, in close cooperation with our Allies, its brilliant work was an acknowledged factor in the final victory. The page turns to reveal: In order to obtain the maximum of realism and authenticity, all the exterior and interior settings in this Motion Picture were photographed in the field - - and, whenever possible, at the actual locations.

In my opinion, Cagney is excellent in this movie, as is Richard Conte. The only fault I can really find with this movie, is that the characters were not really "fleshed out" enough. But the entire movie is suspenseful, your interest will not wane, and even if it does, the ending is worth sitting through the entire picture for.
If you are like me, and love WWII era spy films, then check out this film. You won't be disappointed.
