Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

The last of nine Lone Wolf thrillers starring Warren William, this adequate outing presses the suave playboy sleuth into service on behalf of the British government, smashing a German spy ring in Egypt. As his butler and sidekick, Eric Blore figures prominently in the twist and turns of the plot while Ann Savage, later the female lead in the cult thriller Detour, stands out as a shady war correspondent. This was Hungarian director Andre De Toth's first American assignment and he livens it up with considerable camera movement. There was some concern in American official quarters that it displayed British intelligence as gullible and inept.
