Foreign agent Kaskell (Victor Varconi) - it's implied that he is
German, but since America had nt yet entered the war, his nationality is
left rather vague - wants to get his hands on the plans for Henry
Gregory's (George M.Carleton) light-weight airplane, by simply buying them
with the help of crooked but legitimate broker Lane (Charles C.Wilson).
But somehow the American gouvernment has gotten wind of this and sent
their best agent Madison (Neil Hamilton) to pose as Gregory's partner and
- with the consent of Gregory - take over negotiations.
Lane though thinks he's very clever, and hires Rita (Doris Day) to keep
Madison entertained (if you know what I mean) and in the process soften
things up a bit.
Then though, Lane and Kaskell find out that he is a federal agent, and
pretend to call the deal off - in reality though Kaskell mixes a poisoned
pill in with Madison's indigestion pills (which he seems to be popping
like crazy) and just wait fro the results.
Need I say it though, Rita has since fallen in love with Madison for
real, and, having heard that he is about to poison himself, wants to warn
him ... but is run over by a truck and put out of action for a few days
Madison has still followed Kaskell to Baltimore to find out about his
employers, and Rita, when she comes to again, can convince Lane to help
her to get out of the jam he has gotten himself into, and witht he help of
Madison's chauffeur/sidekick Chuck (Lyle Latell) they can drop in on
Kaskell and his gang, who have since captured Madison, stop him just
before he can give Madison his pill and as a consequence, Madison
and friends can put Kaskell's operation out of action ...
Routine low-budget espionage thriller, not too bad actually, but
nothing to get wild about, or to remember for more than a few days.
