Robinson plays Chris Cross a mild-mannered amateur painter. His character was an 180 degree turn from the tough guy roles that he was known for. Cross comes to the rescue of a young woman named Kitty (Joan Bennett) he thinks is being robbed as he is strolling through Greenwich Village. The would-be-robber is actually the young girl’s shyster boyfriend Johnny (Dan Duryea). Bennett is a femme fatale who uses her charms to seduce and take advantage of Cross. He is trapped in a loveless marriage. Kitty talks Cross into providing her an apartment that can double as an art studio. This is one of the best movies of the film noir genre.

Moe, however, quickly becomes friends with the other residents of the consulate: Sophie Baumer, the consul's wife; the secretary, Baron Max Von Alvenstor; and a pretty maid named Frieda. Moe senses an underlying tension that is not entirely accounted for by the gathering clouds of war. The gambling-loving Baumer has lost a large sum of money belonging to the German government, Sophie has learned to hate her husband and what he stands for, and Baron Max has fallen in love with her. Max confronts Baumer with the discrepancy in the consulate's funds, and Baumer threatens to inform Berlin that one of Max's grandparents was not "Aryan." The arrival of a group of Nazi saboteurs and the insistence they be given the funds to finance their project stirs consulate affairs even further.
