Synopsis / Plot
Based on a true story involving espionage in neutral WWII Turkey. The refined and impeccably spoken James Mason plays the traitorous Ulysses Diello, personal valet for the British ambassador to Turkey. Code named Cicero, Mason photographs precious wartime secrets pilfered from the ambassador's safe and sells them to the Nazis. Mason coaxes the exotic Danielle Darrieux playing the now penniless Polish Countess Staviska, wife of his previous employer, to partake in his ruthless ploy. Insatiable in their desire for money, both Mason and Darrieux betray their friends and countries to the Gestapo.
