During autumn of 1944, an RAF Hudson carrying a VIP passenger in possession of highly secret information is shot down and ditches in the North Sea.

North Africa, World War II. British soldiers on the brink of collapse push beyond endurance to struggle up a brutal incline. It’s not a military objective. It’s The Hill, a manmade instrument of torture, a tower of sand seared by a white-hot sun. And the troops’ tormentors are not the enemy, but their own comrades-at-arms.

Orson Welles’s “Mr. Arkadin” tells the story of an elusive billionaire who hires an American smuggler to investigate his past. Welles missed the editing deadline, so the producer handed over the editing to others. Following two Spanish-dubbed versions, released in Madrid in March 1955, the first English-language version was released in London in August 1955 as “Confidential Report” but was never released in the US. The fourth version, called “the Corinth version”, was discovered in 1961 and was released in the US in 1962. Finally, in 2006, “the Criterion edit” was released; likely to remain the one closest to Welles’ intentions.

Cynical British journalist Fowler (Michael Redgrave) falls in love with a young Vietnamese woman, but is dismayed when a naïve U.S. official (Audie Murphy) also begins vying for the girl’s attention. In retaliation, Fowler informs the communists that the American is selling arms to their enemy. Director Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s drama paints a rosier picture of U.S. involvement in French Indochina than Graham Greene’s provocative 1955 novel.
