O'Brien's after a map that will lead him to some rich oil deposits in Panama. Also after the prized piece of paper is Slezak, the leader of some baddies. Jeffreys plays a nightclub singer who provides love interest for O'Brien. Generally this is a well acted piece, though the script

isn't very interesting. Jeffreys had previously served as a B film actress, and this was her first crack at a bigger picture. The direction is by Tetzlaff, a first effort for the man who had photographed Hitchcock's NOTORIOUS the previous year. The influence of the master director is obvious in

the interesting use of camera angles and shadows.
