Director: ORSON WELLES
Mike Vargas, the Mexican chief of narcotics who sets out to uncover the facts surrounding a car bomb that has killed a wealthy American businessman on the US side of the border. As Vargas investigates, his newly-wed wife Susie is kidnapped by a gang out to exact vengeance for the prosecution of the brother of their leader. Meanwhile, Vargas’ enquiries become progressively more obfuscated by the American cop Hank Quinlan, a besotted incarnation of corruption who alternately conspires with Susie’s captors and seeks solace in the brothel of the Gypsy madame who comforted him in bygone times.
