Not particularly good mystery concerning a reporter who is assigned to investigate the mysterious destruction of war munitions, ships and bases. During the course of his wandering he runs into the title character.
The film is a mess. It runs an hour fails to fully fill even half the running time with a real plot. The first fifteen minutes sets everything in motion with our hero and then the film drops it for useless nonsense. The film then after about 20 minutes where not much happens the film suddenly jumps toward it's conclusion. There is no explanations, no set up it just jumps, dropping our hero and picking up with the titled character.
In all honesty the film might have been something if the film had managed to link it all together, but as it stands it feels like they grafted two or three films together but never really connected them into a real plot with real motivation- everything is simply a given.
