English Summary:

On 10 May 1916, during the First World War, British Captain and novelist Edgar Brodie (Gielgud) returns home on leave, only to discover his obituary in the newspaper. He is brought to a man identifying himself only as "R", who asks him to undertake a secret mission: to identify and eliminate a German agent on his way to Arabia to stir up trouble in the Middle East. Upon agreeing, Brodie is given a new identity (Richard Ashenden), a fake death, and the assistance of a killer known variously as "the Hairless Mexican" and "the General" (Lorre), though he is neither bald, Mexican nor a general.

Brodie's late "predecessor" thought that the enemy agent was staying at the Hotel Excelsior in neutral Switzerland. When "Ashenden" arrives there, he is surprised to find that "R" has also provided him with an attractive wife, Elsa Carrington (Carroll). Entering their suite, he also encounters her new admirer, fellow hotel guest Robert Marvin (Young), who is only slightly deterred by the arrival of her husband (and continues to flirt with Elsa for much of the film). When they are alone, Ashenden is displeased when Elsa reveals she insisted upon the assignment for the thrill of it.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Richard Ashenden az Excelsior szállodába érkezik, ahol előzetes foglalására a 234-35-ös lakosztályt kapja. Kissé csodálkozik, amikor a portás közli, hogy a "felesége" már előző nap megérkezett - mivel agglegény. Felmegy a szobába, ahol egy úriembert lát csevegni egy szép szőke hölggyel, aki hitvesi csókkal siet "férje" fogadására. A színjáték tökéletesen sikerül, az amerikai lovag sűrű bocsánatkérések közepette távozik. Elsa és Richard kettesben maradva megismerkednek egymással, mivel mindketten az angol kémelhárításnak dolgoznak. Elsa "izgalmas borzongásra" vágyott, ezért vállalta a nem éppen veszélytelen megbízatást, Richardnak pedig be kellett ugrania egy ügynök váratlan halála miatt. Mindkettejüket R. úr küldte ide Londonból, azért, hogy ártalmatlanná tegyenek egy veszélyes német ügynököt. Feladatuk csupán a német kém kilétének kiderítése, a piszkos munkához, vagyis hatástalanításához pedig segítőtársat kapnak egy meglehetősen fura, de annál szórakoztatóbb figura: Alfredo Pantaleon Mendóza Lopez tábornok, a "fejvadász" személyében...
