Quotes from

Professor Charles Rankin: Murder can be a chain, Mary, one link leading to another until it circles your neck. Red was digging at the grave of the man I killed. Yes, your little man.
Mary Longstreet: You killed him?
Professor Charles Rankin: With these hands. The same hands that have held you close to me.


Professor Charles Rankin: Who would think to look for the notorious Franz Kindler in the sacred precincts of the Harper School, surrounded by the sons of America's first families? And I'll stay hidden... till the day when we strike again.
Konrad Meinike: Franz! There will be another war?
Professor Charles Rankin: Of course.


Mr. Wilson: Fore paws muddy. No mud on hind. Dry leaves mixed with the mud. Red must have been digging somewhere in the woods.
Noah Longstreet: Have you any idea what for, Mr. Wilson?
Mr. Wilson: A body, I think. Meinike's.

Facts about

Though not as well remembered as some of Orson Welles's more original projects, this was the only film directed by Welles to show a profit in its original release.
The first film released after WWII that showed footage of the concentration camps.
During the dinner conversation, a correspondent, Standish of the London Times in Berlin, is mentioned. This could be a reference to Henry Standish, a war correspondent for the 'News Chronicle', a UK daily paper (1930-1960). (Standish is quoted in 'What Buchenwald Really Means' by Victor Gollancz (1945)). Whether this reference is meant to be the same Standish and whether Standish really wrote an article similar to the one discussed in the film is not able to be determined.
