Hedy Lamarr headlines a cast of Casablanca
veterans (Paul Henreid, Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre) as the mysterious Irene Von Mohr, whose secrets lie at the heart of wartime Lisbon's underworld and underground.
After committing an act of sabotage against the Nazis, Vincent Van Der Lyn (Henreid) escapes from the Netherlands to neutral Portugal, where he enlists in the underground resistance under the leadership of Ricardo Quintanilla (Greenstreet). Tasked by Quitanilla with uncovering a traitor, Vincent soon finds himself being fitted for a frame while falling for the secretive Irene (Lamarr). And the Nazis are closing in...
This CASABLANCA-esque spy thriller set during WWII centers on the exploits of the notorious "Flying Dutchman," a fugitive resistance leader from Holland who heads for Lisbon where he hooks up with other members of the underground. One of them is a beautiful young woman, and none of the others trust her because she is married to an important German official. For the resistance leader, real trouble comes when he is framed for the murder of a fellow agent. Still he escapes from prison and hides out with his other colleague while he works to prove that he is innocent and carry out a major secret mission for the resistance.
