Overview
Father Michael Logan (Montgomery Clift), a model of clerical piety, hears a killer’s confession. Eyewitnesses point to a priest as the murderer and the sacrament of penance forbids Logan to speak out – even in his own defense – when circumstantial evidence targets Logan as the prime suspect. Anne Baxter and Karl Malden co-star as a former flame and a police inspector whose attempts to clear Logan only entrap him further.

Alfred Hitchcock makes a cameo at the start of the film, crossing the top of a staircase.
