Description by OLDIES.com:

New York Herald Tribune reporter Jimmy Race (Dana Andrews, The Best Years of Our Lives, Laura) is sent to Budapest by his editor, Nick Strang (George Sanders, All About Eve, Rebecca), to help colleague Jeanne Moray (Marta Toren, Sirocco) investigate a rumored plot to overthrow Hungary's Communist dictatorship. After coming into possession of some microfilm that threatens to incriminate backers of the plot inside the government, Jimmy is arrested and jailed. Tortured, Jimmy is forced into confessing to being a spy, and Jeanne and Strang must put their faith in a man wanted by the Communist authorities in order to help gain his freedom. This tense political suspense was directed by Robert Parrish (Fire Down Below, Duffy) from a screenplay by noted film noir scripter William Bowers (Cry Danger, Pitfall), and co-stars Audrey Totter (Lady in the Lake, Women's Prison). Newly remastered.

Product Description:

ASSIGNMENT - PARIS is based on a serialized SATURDAY EVENING POST yarn by Paul and Pauline Gallico. The film stars Dana Andrews as reporter Jimmy Race, assigned to the Paris bureau of the New York Herald Tribune. Race makes the acquaintance of French journalist Jeanne Moray (Marta Toren), who is forced to suppress a white-hot news story about an impending Iron Curtain political conspiracy because she lacks proof. At great risk to himself, Race heads to Budapest to ferret out the facts, sometimes right under the noses of the communist "damage control" experts. George Sanders co-stars as editor Rick Strang, who dispatches Race on his fact-finding mission--partly because of his dedication to truth, and partly because he has designs on the gorgeous Jeanne himself. One of the more palatable anti-Red tracts of its era, ASSIGNMENT - PARIS makes excellent use of authentic Parisian and Hungarian locations.
