Just a word of caution: the order I received and ignored can be given to others. First you and now we are gambling for very high stakes, and we must be extremely cautious. We must meet cautiously, and we must travel cautiously.
I'm inclined to rely on your judgment in such cases.
The first mark of a talented amateur is that he respects the professional. Au revoir.

Well written, too earnest suspense story that tries to create the atmosphere of a Hitchcock movie, but has no surprises. It's a very straightforward story of blackmail, in which Mitchum plays a press agent who tries to ferret out the source of his employer's wealth. This leads him to a wealthy Swede, who has passed on, but who, he learns, was involved in a conspiracy with the nazis which was the subject of the blackmail. A superficial love story and a femme fatale don't raise this above the norm, but some juicy dialogue and decent music do add nice touches. Remarkably poor direction. Hideous Eastmancolor photography.
