Van Johnson (Battleground, The Caine Mutiny), Vera Miles (Psycho, The Wrong Man) and Cecil Parker (The Ladykillers, The Lady Vanishes) co-star in this Hitchcockian thriller directed by the great Henry Hathaway (Diplomatic Courier, Kiss of Death). A blind American writer living in London stumbles upon a criminal conspiracy involving a kidnapping and extortion. While drowning his sorrows at a local pub, Phil Hannon (Johnson) is convinced that he overheard a kidnapping plot. He immediately reports the incident to the police, but when they dismiss his suspicions, the courageous man takes matters into his own hands, using his four remaining senses to track down the criminals. Beautifully shot in color and in widescreen by legendary award-winning cinematographer Milton R. Krasner (Deadline U.S.A., Boy on a Dolphin).
