John Hodiak plays George Taylor, a war veteran who wakes up in an Army field hospital with a reconstructed face, amnesia and only a 'Dear John' hate letter from his ex-wife, and a letter of credit from a friend 'Larry Cravat.' Taylor heads to Los Angeles to track down his friend and his own identity. As he slowly puts the clues together to his identity, Taylor eludes some club bouncers only to meet Christy (Nancy Guild), a somewhat naive singer in a club owned by 'nice guy' Mel Phillips (Richard Conte). As things progress Taylor discovers that Cravat may be a murderer and the criminal who has stolen $2 Million Dollars in Nazi -based laundered cash. After a series of chases Taylor learns from a fake seer named Anzelmo (Fritz Kortner) that Cravat seems a lot like Taylor himself. When Mel Phillips jumps in to help, things take a surprising turn and the mystery of the money and the murderer are discovered.
