Due to the work of a Naval-intelligence officer, Carol Mathews, posing as Carol Evans, Chief-Petty-Officer Jimmy Woodford is arrested and charged with selling military secrets to agents of a foreign government, via the ruse of buying-and-selling foreign postage stamps. Chief Petty Officer Steve Fletcher, posing as Steve Roberts is assigned to find the members and leader of the gang by delivering an envelope to them with the explanation that Jimmy asked him to do so as a favor as Jimmy was spending a few days in the brig for being A.W.O.L. Steve Fletcher/Roberts has no idea of where to start other than knowing the name of Jimmy's girl-friend. But Navy "intelligence" neglects to inform him that the "girl-friend" is also an agent working undercover. He contrives to meet her accidentally at a show-shine stand with an explanation that he is a buddy of Jimmy's, and have her take him on Jimmy's usual route. She agrees, and they start at Nick Salado's café, have a fine grilled-fish dinner but... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

The secret is it's a poor movie
7 April 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Poor little second feature has Grant Withers and Fay Wray wandering around the city trying to track down who wants an envelope carrying navy secrets -- only they think it's collectible stamps. Withers and Wray try to carry this one along on their charm, but they aren't up to it, although there is one good scene in a park and a small, annoying boy on a bicycle.
