After the war, Canadian flyer Laurence Gerard returns to France to discover who ordered the killing of a group of Resistance 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. Starring Dick Powell and Walter Slezak. Directed by Edward Dmytryk. Original screenplay by John Paxton.
