An archaeologist forsakes his fiancee for a passionate affair with a beautiful young German woman. But lla has more than love on her mind... While the film's star, Nadja Tiller, was unknown in Britain, she had starred in many German films and was Miss Austria in 1949. Ha's foreignness is key and Margaret's slightly prim glamour is no match for her continental seductiveness. But the promise of sex masks something more dangerous and giving her body so freely signals lla's emotional deadness. Mike learns his lesson the hard way.
