Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

As if the presence of Hitler wasn't enough to blight the 1936 Berlin Games, the activities of a nest of spies nearly prevent Keye Luke from taking his place on the US swimming team. He's kidnapped when Warner Oland gets too close to discovering just who is after the plans for a top-secret autopilot mechanism. But the villains had not taken into consideration the debut appearance of Number Two Son, Charlie Jr (Layne Tom Jr), or Chan's unlikely alliance with the Nazi police. However, this entry's crowning glory is H Bruce Humberstone's deft use of Olympic newsreel footage.
