While in hiding our man discovers an unwitting dentist who looks just like him, so Mr. Muller kills one Dr. Bartok... only to discover the tooth grinder wasn't exactly a model citizen. Henreid, most famous for Casablanca, played against type in this complex and disturbing noir where no one is innocent, and past secrets have a way of turning deadly.
