Another unfortunately static talky from 1930, concerning Betty Compson playing a German spy during the First World War in Gibraltar. Compson occasionally manages a decently spoken line, but everyone else overacts, except for von Brincker as the German spymaster, who seems to be reading his lines phonetically off cue cards. The one slow traveling shot two-thirds of the way through the movie doesn't help as everyone speaks very clearly, very loudly and with great emPHASis.
