Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake shine in this seminal revenge film, based on the Graham Greene novel. After being paid off in marked bills, hit-man Raven (Ladd) vows vengeance on his two-faced boss, a nightclub promoter and fifth columnist. Raven soon meets the beautiful Ellen (Lake), a magician/chanteuse and fiancée of the pursuing police lieutenant—and that’s when things get complicated.
