Eli Snedeker (George Tobias) runs his diamond mine with an iron first and the engineering skills of John Gamble (George Brent). Tiring of Snedeker’s sadistic treatment and the attempted seductions of Snedeker’s wife Delia (Lee Patrick), Gamble quashes Snedeker’s attempt to buy out Roger Smythe’s (Miles Mander) neighboring claim and persuades Smythe to take him on as a partner. Smythe’s fortunes turnaround thanks to Gamble’s efforts, and the pair discover the fabulous Star of Africa – a diamond of astonishing size and beauty. Gamble and Smythe make plans to sell their diamonds and rendezvous in Alexandria when Snedeker strikes, leaving Gamble framed for murder. Reinventing himself as wealthy financier John Bradley, Gamble tracks down Smythe’s daughter Katherine (Brenda Marshall) to give her the Star of Africa – but the diamond is Exhibit A in the murder case against John Gamble!
