Temporarily vacating the director’s chair, Welles marshaled his Mercury company members in front of and behind the camera for an of-the-moment WWII thriller. Joseph Cotten stars and scripts, playing an American engineer trying to escape Turkey and flee Nazi agents as munitions are smuggled in; helping or hindering are wife Ruth Warrick and associate Everett Sloane (both of Citizen Kane), real-life Welles flame Dolores del Rio, and Welles himself as a Turkish top cop.

A film by Norman Foster
