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.
