Synopsis / Plot
After recuperation from physical and psychological trauma during the war, Robert Ryan finds himself stationed at a sleepy Coast Guard outpost on the California coast. He's restless and diffident about his upcoming marriage to a local girl. One day on the fog-shrouded strand he encounters a beautiful woman (Joan Bennett) gathering driftwood. He walks her back to her beach shack where a two-edged friction starts to develop. Suddenly in walks her husband (Charles Bickford), who was blinded by Bennett in a drunken accident years before; though no longer able to work, he's still reckoned the greatest painter in the world.
