Summary
A naive reporter (McCrea) is dispatched to Europe on the eve of World War II. While covering a pacifist conference in London, he becomes romantically involved with the daughter of the group's founder, and befriends an elderly diplomat who holds the secret of peace. When the diplomat disappears, the reporter stumbles onto the bloody trail of a major Nazi spy ring--and his future father-in-law may be the leader!
