A twisted tale of espionage in the Big Apple: while newly recruited FBI double agent Bill Dietrich is training in Hamburg, a mysterious street accident victim proves to have been spying on atomic bomb secrets. Dietrich is assigned to the New York spy ring stealing these secrets, which operates from a house in the Upper East Side. Dietrich’s mission is to track down “Mr. Christopher” before his ruthless associates unmask and kill him. This first of the so-called “docudramas” to be shot entirely on location, The House on 92nd Street would influence a number of contemporary productions, including The Naked City.
