Murray is a Russian scientist who defects to England and is assigned a top-secret job with a government nuclear-research lab. He's actually a Russian agent, however, and passes information to Wheatley, a wealthy landowner who sends the goods to Moscow. Lab assistant Thorburn catches on, but

it turns out that Murray is really a British spy passing phony information to traitor Wheatley. Murray goes through the motions of a trial so that he can be sent back to Moscow, where he will be a mole for the British. All this maneuvering leaves the audience with a nagging question: if Murray was

an Englishman working as a spy in Russia in the first place, why the elaborate plan to trip him up in Great Britain? The picture is often darkly lit to the point of distraction in an otherwise routine production.
