Popular American actor on the European scene, Eddie Constantine has a role that is slightly out of character for him. Instead of the usual, slightly ironic treatment of a tough guy out to fight gangsters, drug-runners, and other types from the demi-monde of crime, he is Charlie, a man sent up against a serious Nazi war criminal. Charlie has done well for himself but when a close friend asks him to track down the Nazi in Athens, he takes on the job -- his friend's brother was a victim of the Nazi during the war. Charlie runs into the usual resistance and soon finds that the Nazi's philosophy and arrogance have hit closer to home than what he thought.
