$11.75

Canadian flyer Laurence Gerard finds that his wife has been murdered by a French collaborator. His quest for justice leads him to Switzerland and Argentina.

Trivia

The second and last collaboration between Dick Powell and director Edward Dmytryk. Along with Murder, My Sweet (1944), these films transformed Powell’s image from that of a light song-and-dance man into a serious “tough guy” actor.

Description

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.

 

REGION ALL PAL DVD WILL NOT PLAY IN U.S/CANADA

Please be aware that due to the age and rarity of some of the media we distribute the quality varies. We always endeavour to offer the highest quality available but in some cases the picture/sound may not be pristine, particularly in comparison to today’s high quality production values.
The Films are often from old TV broadcasts and tape transfers and haven’t been restored so the quality, while perfectly watchable will not be the same standard as modern DVD’s.
