Grand storytelling in the old Hollywood style. What I mean by that is the film is a grand adventure but so contrived that only Hollywood attempt a plot such as that and actually get away with it.
Two secret agents for an unnamed country break into a French military base only to get caught. Well one gets caught and the other plots his escape from Devil's Island. Its all in the name of love since Victory Jory, who is the one not caught, loves the daughter of his friend. He then goes to the island as a guard in order to engineer an escape. What happens is the movie and a great adventure. It doesn't make a lick of real world sense at times, but the movie sells it and you really don't care.
This is one to track down.
