The House on 92nd Street is a 1945 spy film directed by Henry Hathaway. Set during World War II, the film revolves around Bill Dietrich (William Eythe), who is approached while in college by a German spy about becoming a spy himself. Dietrich feigns interest, but immediately reports to the FBI, and becomes a double agent working against the Nazis. The FBI secretly modifies his credentials, allowing him access to the complete spy ring led by Elsa Gebhardt (Signe Hasso). Gebhardt finds this change odd, and requests confirmation of the order to let Dietrich have access to the entire organization, but as the secret communication is necessarily slow, she has no choice but to accept the orders for now. Although communication is slow, it is just a matter of time before Dietrich's betrayal is evident. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the US enters the war and things really begin to heat up for Dietrich. When he discovers a plot to steal the plans for the atomic bomb, he is in a race against time to stop the plot to put the atomic bomb in Hitler's hands.moreless
