Mexican Narcotics officer Ramon Miguel 'Mike' Vargas (Charlton Heston) has to interrupt his honeymoon to Susie (Janet Leigh) when an American building contractor is killed. He dies on the US side of the border but it's clear that the car bomb that killed him was planted on the Mexican side. As a result, Vargas delays his return to Mexico City where he has been mounting a case against the Grandi family crime and narcotics syndicate.
Police Captain Hank Quinlan (Welles) is in charge on the US side and he soon has a suspect, a Mexican named Manolo Sanchez. But when Vargas catches Quinlan planting evidence to convict Sanchez, he finds his own life, and that of his wife's, in danger.Hide
