"The most deceitful man a woman ever loved!"
Add to Watchlist

From the sophisticated and envelop-pushing mind of Orson Welles, comes a complex account of one small eastern town with a proud history and a dark secret. This box office sensation was produced only one year after the atrocities of Nazi Germany were unveiled to western world. In the manner of modern Film Noir, Welles transfixes the captivated audience with the perfect picture of post-war America. Characters become professionally and intimately intertwined just prior to discovering the possibility of an exiled, escape Nazi war criminal who is living in their small, secure town. A monumental trio of characters played by none other that Loretta Young as the beautiful socialite, Edward G. Robinson as the war crimes investigator, and the film's director Orson Welles, bring the residual fears and hard human questions surrounding WWII into the spotlight.

Along with a dramatic criminal story, Welles takes the opportunity to interweave some of his past memories into the plot. These include locations like the Todd School For Boys which Welles attended as a youth.
