Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

The huge naval shipyards near San Diego were put at Columbia's disposal for this espionage yarn, with Pat O'Brien as a naval intelligence agent who goes undercover to prevent a Nazi sabotage operation. Chester Morris runs the shipyard under threat, and since he happens to be O'Brien's brother, he's understandably bewildered by O'Brien's sudden arrival with a wife and two children in tow. In fact, the FBI have drafted in another agent, Carole Landis, to play O'Brien's imaginary wife. You can guess what happens to them in between all the fist fights and propagandist speechifying.
