Captain Holling is relieved of command of his ship after he suffers a nervous breakdown. His replacement, Captain Downey, takes over the liner just as it is about to be used for an experiment in remote control. Professor Grimson has devised a system for controlling the ship from a laboratory on land. But as Grimson demonstrates the system and the special component that makes it work, a rival group is listening in, hoping to use the device for its own purposes. Shortly after the demonstration, the professor is attacked and fatally injured. Major Pope comes on board to investigate the attack, and he decides to come along on the planned trip. Soon the ship is full of passengers and crew--and at least two of the ship's occupants are really enemy agents. Written by
It is totally incomprehensible at best. The wooden acting, the cardboard figures along with the poor setting make this a movie to be viewed only if you revel in C grade movies (as I do). There is a semblance of a plot- I have seen this 70 years after it was made and the technology aspect can be discounted. The rubbish backgrounds can't. It is difficult enough following the plot when due to the black and white colour, and similarity of dress, the characters tend to blend. When you combine that with blackouts and seemingly Nazi characters it becomes really unbalanced.
I can't see one actor in the film who would look back on this and be happy.
