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

Gerard's separation pay would equate to about $2,205 at the time or $30,556 in 2017. See more »
The transporter bridge can be seen through the window of the Marseilles police officer's office. The bridge was partially destroyed in 1944 and the rest fell down in 1945. See more »
Senor, I suspect that you were a very fine flyer and before that perhaps a promising shoe salesman, but you're a gross amateur at intrigue. You cannot expect to catch a trout by shouting at it from the riverbank proclaiming that you're a great fisherman. You need a hook with feathers on it.

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.
