Love conquers communism in this mildly entertaining but implausible picture that never catches fire despite the European locations and some important actors. Gable is a newsman in Moscow at the end of the war when he meets and marries Russian ballerina Tierney. They are united by the US

ambassador and go off on their honeymoon, where they meet Haydn, a British man, and his new Russian wife, Belita. Haydn is asked to leave Russia by the authorities, but they won't let his wife go with him. Next thing you know, Gable is suffering the same fate. The two men unite and attempt to

smuggle their wives out of Mother Russia through the usual means, but they are tied up tightly by red tape. They eventually pool their resources to buy a boat, and, with the help of Miles, a British sailor, make plans to pick their wives up in the Baltic. With further aid from More, a radio

broadcaster stationed in Moscow, the wives find out where to be, but only Belita arrives at the jumping-off place. Tierney has been kept in the city to do a ballet in front of an important Soviet army man. Gable comes ashore, robs a Russian of his uniform, gets to the theater, steals his bride

away in a feat of bravery, and, after a chase, manages to get her to the ship and freedom. It's more like a "Rambo" adventure than anything else, and if you can believe Stallone, then you can surely accept Gable as the one-man assault force who infiltrates Russia to rescue his wife.
