Directed by Irving Pichel
From Irving Pichel, the outstanding director of The Most Dangerous Game, She, The Bride Wore Boots, Quicksand and Destination Moon, comes this noirish actioner about a team of spies and saboteurs in Nazi-occupied France. Screen great Alan Ladd (This Gun for Hire, Calcutta, Shane) stars with Geraldine Fitzgerald (So Evil My Love) in this riveting war-time spy thriller. The story opens at an Army spy school where tactics and gadgets used in espionage operations are demonstrated to students—as well as the sobering lesson that one wrong move could cost them their lives. A cunning captain (Ladd) of an O.S.S. team is sent undercover into Nazi-occupied France to blow up a railway tunnel. With danger constantly at their backs, the team carefully plots a course of action while the enemy is closing in and D-Day is fast approaching.
