Diello (James Mason), a valet to the British ambassador in Turkey, begins photographing British war communications (under the code name ‘Cicero’) and selling them to a German embassy attaché, Moyzisch (Oskar Karlweis). Moyziisch develops Diello’s film before handing over large sums of British currency. Diello is the central character in this post-war British spy thriller, based upon a true story, and the darkroom scene is quite realistic in detail.
