Plot synopsis

George Edward Grodman (Greenstreet), a respected superintendent at Scotland Yard in 1890, makes a mistake in an investigation that causes the execution of an innocent man. He takes the blame for his error, is dismissed from his position as superintendent and replaced by the obnoxious and gloating John Buckley (George Coulouris).
Soured by the turn of events, Grodman sets out to make Buckley look too inept to perform his new job. He enlists the aid of his macabre artist friend, Victor Emmric (Lorre), and when a mysterious murder occurs, they realize their chance to ruin Buckley may have arrived.
