Opening in the shadowed half-light of a bank vault in Paris, where a watchman has been mysteriously murdered, the picture centres around the methods of detective Paul Le Gros - played by Raymond Massey - to solve the identity of a masked criminal called "Le Loup" (The Wolf), who kills with an injection of poison with a finger ring. As Peter Pomeroy, the detective's useless assistant, Claude Hulbert provides a spot of comedy.
