A melodrama presented unusually in the style of a "March of Time" documentary, incorporating newreel footage and actual spying locations. Made with the co-operation of the FBI (Edgar J. Hoover himself appears to introduce the movie), it tries to impress with up-to-date spying techniques; not surprisingly, many will strike a modern audience as laughably primitive. Even so, this is a fast, exciting thriller of its period.
