A film drama with Paul Henreid and Joan Bennett.

An ex-convict on the run finds that the only physical difference between himself and a well-known psychiatrist is a scar on the doctor's face. At first it looks as though the likeness will solve his problems but he finds that it only complicates them and in the end destroys him.
