Frustrated by a seemingly infallible gang of jewel thieves, Scotland Yard arranges to have an undercover agent become part of the gang. Once inside, the agent starts to become attached to a Russian woman who is part of the gang but seems to want to break free of the sordid life she leads. Trying to trap the leader of the gang -- whom no one has ever seen - the police plan goes awry and their agent is put into mortal danger, with his one chance being the Russian woman having told the truth about wanting to break free.

This film is a mystery which concerns a rather sick man who loves to play chess and laughs like a Bela Lugosi who loves to cause all kinds of problems and is being investigated by Pete Borden, (Esmond Knight) as an undercover police man and gets deeply involved with Natasha, (Lilli Palmer) who made her first film debut and adds a great deal of charm to this rather old B picture from England and produced by First National Pictures. If you are interested what woman's hairs styles looked like and the clothes that they wore, this is a great film to enjoy along with the old automobiles that were driven during the Year 1935. Lilli Palmer was so well liked, she eventually came to the United States and married Rex Harrison and the both of them had a great career together.
