Father Logan (Clift), a Quebec priest, takes confession from a murderer (O.E. Hasse) and is tormented not only by the sanctity of the confessional, but by the cops, who come to suspect that Logan himself is guilty. And it's all complicated by a blackmail attempt and Logan's pre-dog collar girlfriend (Baxter).
It'll never be remembered as a Hitchcock classic by any stretch, but that is far from saying it's the mess that some regard it as. It's entertaining, and the visuals speak volumes more than the over-cooked dialogue. Worth a look.
