A second-rate action-adventure film with an uncommonly cliche script from a usually good writer, Anhalt, that stops the flow of activity to wax moralistically on life and war. Franciosa is in Paris in 1939. He talks Comer, an intelligence officer in the French government, into marrying

Hubschmid, a German Baron, and moving to Germany under the guise of having defected from France. It's now 1943, and Franciosa and fellow officers Stockwell and Bell learn that the Germans have a new torpedo that is wreaking havoc on Allied shipping. They parachute into Germany and quickly

masquerade as POWs in a labor camp near the factory that manufactures the dread torpedo. Constantine, a guard at the factory, is in reality a Polish agent. With his aid they learn which building houses the machinery. Now Franciosa, posing as an electrician, goes to Hubschmid's mansion and gives

Comer the information, which she radios via short wave to London. Bombers are soon overhead and they destroy the factory, but Bell is slain by a German patrol after having escaped the bombs. Franciosa and Stockwell seek shelter at Hubschmid's home, where Comer tells them that some of the Polish

partisans have stolen a torpedo so it can be dissected by Allied munitions men. They attempt to escape on a sub, but that's stymied, so they have to tote the torpedo through several skirmishes until they get to a small airstrip where a plane is waiting to take them to safety. Once there, Comer

announces that she is staying in Germany to continue her undercover job and to stay with her husband, whom she has come to love. A German patrol spots them and opens fire just as the plane flies off to England, and the film ends. Coincidence played a large part in the script, and much of it was as

hard to swallow as a handful of aspirin. They cut out all of the diatribe for the European release, and it came in at just over 80 minutes, a vast improvement. Dynarksi became a successful Hollywood acting teacher and theatre owner, and Landers became one of the busiest dubbing directors

around.
