La Chatte (The Cat) in this wartime meller is played by Francoise Arnoul. When her husband is murdered by the Gestapo, Cora (Arnoul) joins the French resistance movement. Gaining a reputation underground for her catlike grace and cunning, Cora has sworn not to complicate her life with romance until the war is won. Even so, she falls hard for Swiss journalist Bernard (Bernard Wicki). This proves fatal when Bernard turns out to be a Nazi spy. Both star Francoise Arnoul and director Henri Decoin seem preoccupied with other matters throughout La Chatte.
