American film noir starring Edward G. Robinson, Loretta Young, and Orson Welles. It is Welles's third completed feature film as director and his first film noir, about a war crimes investigator tracking a high-ranking Nazi fugitive to a Connecticut town. An officer for the war crimes commission, Wilson (Edward G. Robinson), is tasked with tracking down Franz Kindler (Welles), a mastermind of the concentration camps who, in the aftermath of World War II, has erased all traces of his identity and settled into suburban conformity. It is the first Hollywood film to present documentary footage of the Holocaust. The original story by Victor Trivas was nominated for an Academy Award.
