Private Eddie (Eddie Craven) and Sally (Marie Wilson) really couldn't have picked a worse day for starting their honeymoon. First, he is commandeered off to Powder Island on an important mission, where women are strictly forbidden, and when he smuggles her in nevertheless, he learns he has to share his tent with another bloke, which of course would take all the romance out of the honeymoon. Then though, Eddie and Sally become involved in a murder case, which seems to involve gunrunning.

Colonel Hackett (Henry Kolker), who conducts the investigations, soon realizes he needs help from the outside, and calls Washington to send special investigator Bob Rogers (Cy Kendall), and Rogers gets results, and fast, too: He finds out that Jeffries (Boris Karloff), one of the civiian employees on Powder Island, did 8 years in prison for stealing a gouvernment payroll on Haiti, and furthermore, Riley (Harland Tucker), the man who got killed, was one of the key witneses against him in this case. Rogers soon beats a confession out of Jeffries, even if that means to overlook some minor but important details - like that it was established that the killer wears a ring bearing his initials ...

Of all the army personnel, only Lt.Matthews (Regis Toomey) seems to be sympathetic towards Jeffries, and even promises to help him escape ... which puts Jeffries on guard.

And indeed, eventually Matthews reveals himself to Sally to be the actual killer and gunrunner too, and he tries to take her as hostage to be able to leave the island ... but in the end is stopped by Jeffries, who this way re-establishes his good reputation, even if he had to catch a bullet for that.


Even if the plot seems at times a bit farfetched, and the killer is to spot early on, Invisible Menace is a nice B-crime-thriller, with the ever-dependable Boris Karloff carrying large parts of the movie with ease and Eddie Craven and Marie Wilson loosening up things considerably as the foiled honeymooners. Fun.
