The most deceitful man a woman ever loved!

An escaped Nazi war criminal takes on a new person in a small New England town in this "top-notch" (Cue) and "tense and suspenseful" (The Hollywood Reporter) noir starring the top actors of the genre, Orson Welles and Edward G. Robinson.

Charles Rankin (Welles), responsible for unspeakable brutality in the Holocaust, is now living as a history professor in a small American town, with plans to wed Mary (Loretta Young), the daughter of a local judge. When an old comrade escapes prison and comes looking for refuge, Rankin quickly sees that it's a plot to find him and kills the man. But a wily government agent (Robinson), who was behind the set-up, fervently pursues Rankin and attempts to convince Mary of Rankin's crimes, leading to an action-packed confrontation you won't soon forget.
