Highly regarded theater actor Anthony John (Ronald Colman) has a violent temper, which leads his actress wife, Brita (Signe Hasso), to leave him. When the two perform together in a production of "Othello," the strain of playing Othello drives John insane, to the point of killing his mistress, Pat Kroll (Shelley Winters).
