On being demobbed at the end of the war, Canadian flyer Laurence Gerard returns to France to discover who ordered the killing of a group of Resistence fighters including his new bride. He identifies Vichy collaborator Marcel Jarnac, who is reported as dead himself. Not believing this, Gerard follows the trail to Argentina where it is apparent that Nazism is also far from dead.Written by

Just before Laurence Gerard is struck a second time with a pistol, Luther Adler's character orders the gun thug, saying "Casse lui la gueule!" meaning "Beat him up!" See more »
When Gerard goes to break into the Bar Fortuna, he uses his Luger pistol to break the lock on the sliding window. He first removes the magazine, but does not clear the chamber. He then smashes the lock, and replaces the magazine. Only then does he operate the toggle link and a shell can be heard hitting the sidewalk. In short, he smashed the lock with the pistol still loaded. See more »
If you continue to follow Madame Jarnac now, the consequeces may be serious.
That's what I had in mind,
Senor, I must warn you, I must command you - do not follow Madame Jarnac!
I'll tell you what. I thought it over and decided not to pay any attention to you.

I really enjoyed this film, but i thought that it could've been edited tighter. The run time was a little too long, and a tighter edit would've helped the film greatly. It also would've been nice to have a bigger female star for the main female character. Hedy Lamarr would've been my first choice. But overall, i was very impressed with the film and thought that Dick Powell's performance was strong. He showed a greater range of emotions than i've seen in other Powell films.
