Storyline

Documentary-style prologue follows training of O.S.S. agents for WWII work behind enemy lines. One of the group is a German "mole;" leaders Gibson and Sharkey are aware of this and scheme to feed him false info about the invasion of Europe, while the real agents go to France to find a secret V-2 rocket depot. But the German spy outsmarts them and rejoins his people knowing too much; Bob Sharkey takes the risk of going in after him. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

O'Connell's identification card which he flashes at the submarine base gives his date of birth as April 4, 1910, and the date the card was issued as July 12, 1944; but the story is taking place in the months preceding D-Day, June 6, 1944. See more »

A MUST SEE For all WWII-era Film Buffs!
29 March 2003 | by (Southeast Virginia) – See all my reviews

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.
