Plot

Bob Sharkey (Cagney), an instructor with a group of American espionage candidates, teaches his students the art of enemy infiltration. However, he is alerted that one of the students is a Nazi-German agent named "Bill O'Connell" (Conte). Sharkey's boss, Charles Gibson (Walter Abel), confirms that O'Connell is actually Wilhelm Kuncel, one of Germany's top spies, but tells Sharkey to pass him through the course, as they know Kuncel's mission is to determine the date and location of Operation Overlord (the planned Allied invasion of Europe). They intend to provide Kuncel with false information to pass along to his superiors.
