He was a man without God. She was a woman without a man!
Humphrey Bogart stars as James Carmody, an American fighter pilot turned adventurer in 1947 China. To escape the wrath of a savage warlord (Lee J. Cobb), he masquerades as a man of God. While hiding out in a remote Catholic mission, Carmody finds he is comfortable posing as a priest and restores some order to the feuding villages in the area. However things change when he falls in love with a beautiful nurse, Anne (Gene Tierney) who, though ashamed of her feelings, is drawn to him. When the warlord catches up with him, Bogart must take the most desperate gamble of his life.
