SCENE IN THE ICE-BLUE EYES

Psychological melodrama, but pretty synthetic stimulation at that, this tells of the double life of foreign agent Francis Bond, who sold out the Italians he loved to the English he hated; who betrayed the anti-Fascists with whom he worked because of Maria- and after losing Maria, atoned for his guilt by joining the British secret service. On leave in London he contracts a new passion for Consuelo, whose ""ice blue eyes"" are deceptive. Her love for him is a jealous love- but admits treachery through another lover who is Bond's double. Tracking him down- too late-Bond exposes incest as well as treason, inflicts his revenge.
