The Chase is about Chuck Scott (Robert Cummings), a World War II veteran who is now a penniless drifter tormented by bizarre dreams, who takes a job as a driver for Eddie Roman (Steve Cochran), a vicious gangster. Roman tests his new driver, Scott, by assuming control of his car from the back seat. Unbeknownst to Scott, Roman has an accelerator installed in the rear passenger compartment so that he can ‘take over’ the vehicle whenever he wants. This trick not only unnerves his new driver but also Roman’s right-hand man, Gino (Peter Lorre).
Things get tough for Scott when he falls in love with Roman’s wife, Lorna (Michèle Morgan), who attempts to kill herself because life has become unbearable with her sadistic husband. The two run off together to Cuba and a bizarre chase begins wherein Scott is framed for a murder and must therefore avoid both Roman and the police.
Finally, at a point when Scott is able to clear his name, he is thrown back into the nightmare in a surprising twist.
