Goofs

In the opening scene when the German U-boat is preparing to torpedo the warship, the view through the periscope has the ship moving left to right. When the torpedo strikes, the ship is moving from right to left. The torpedo explosion is on the near (port side) rather than the far (starboard) where it would have struck in the original scene.

Is this the most stupid spy film ever made
10 December 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

It is quite a bizarre mixture of spy film and Rom.The most likely reason for this is the desire of MGM to ensure that this spy film would have some appeal to all types of audiences.Maybe the factor of at least 8 writers contributes to the explanation.There are many sub plots that go totally unexplained.Caesar Romero plays a Russian officer who is part of the German spy ring.Given that the two countries were at war why was he working for the enemy.Who shot Charley Grapewin and how did he get past the guards?William Powell wants to go off to fight the war,but would never have been allowed to go because of his knowledge of intelligence work.Rosalind Russell inherits a badly written part and does her best with it.
