Time Out says

Hollywood's cannibalisation of the 1939 French psychological thriller Carrefour, here developed along lighter lines to match Powell's Thin Man image. He plays a happily married diplomat who, on the eve of an ambassadorial appointment, finds himself being blackmailed as a supposed former crook (amnesia has conveniently left a hole in his memory), and confronted by proof in the form of a confederate, a mistress and a mother. It emerges as a typical MGM confection, but the cast remains very watchable.
