In Crossroads French diplomat David Talbot marries the beautiful Lucienne, but shortly afterward finds himself being blackmailed by crooks who insist he once murdered a man.
The problem is that Talbot believes he is suffering from amnesia and has cause to think that he did indeed commit the murder he is accused of. A supposed ex-flame, Michelle Allaine, corroborates the blackmailer’s claims, as does a photo of Talbot and Michelle out on the town together.
Hedy Lamarr made Crossroads during World War II. One of her other wartime activities was less well publicized: with Hollywood composer George Antheil, Lamarr received a patent for an underwater detonation device for the war effort
