Atmospheric suspense thriller based on a short story by Pushkin. Anton Walbrook stars as Russian army captain Herman Suvorin, who secretly covets the wealth and position of his fellow officers and becomes obsessed with learning the secrets of the card game Faro. When he hears that the elderly Countess Ranevskaya (Edith Evans) has struck a bargain with the devil to gain the very knowledge he so desires, he worms his way into her household and does all he can to wrestle the knowledge from her - but the price turns out to be higher than he could ever have imagined.
