Cagey swindler Harry Fabian (Richard Widmark as one of noir's most subversive antiheroes) aspires to make his mark as a promoter despite his nightclub singer girlfriend Mary Bristol (Gene Tierney) urging him to get a straight gig. Trailed by a slippery history of dead-end schemes, he stumbles upon legendary wrestler Gregorius the Great (played by retired legendary wrestler Stanislaus Zbyszko)-conning the wrestler into believing he can successfully promote the spectacular Greco-Roman contests Gregorius was once known for. But favorable outcomes can be bought in this interconnected syndicate of breakable contracts, unfathomable corruption, and disposable men-and naïve Fabian jeopardizes his own life with a foolhardy game plan that threatens a valuable family legacy. At the urging of 20th Century Fox studio head Darryl F. Zanuck, director Jules Dassin exported this assignment to London just as he was being blacklisted stateside.
