Dennis O'Keefe of the FBI and Louis Hayward of Scotland Yard join forces to investigate a trail of murders concealing a plot to smuggle atom bomb plans from America to London.
One of the original Cold War spy yarns, the urgent documentary style of this thriller reflects the political climate of the time, with the Communists cast as stage villains and respectful nods to the postwar "special relationship" between America and Britain.
Although South African-born Hayward acquits himself well in the English detective role, it's a pity the budget didn't stretch to importing Jack Warner.
