Despite seemingly thorough precautions, a gang of saboteurs and shadowy foreign agents are able to smuggle out the secret blueprints for innovative new planes and sabotage prototypes during testing. With the aid of eccentric detective Bartholomew and spunky nurse and female pilot Lou Farnsby, Carter is able to expose the fifth columnists as well as the traitors that are helping them. Written by
With this speech, Nick Carter derides three of his contemporary movie detectives: Nick Charles, Charlie CHan, and Sherlock Holmes: "Look, I'm not a storybook detective with, uh, a highball glass in one hand (Nick Charles) and, uh, a Chinese proverb (Charlie CHan) in another, nor can I tell you from the ashes of a man's cigar (Sherlock Holmes) that he, uh, had kippered herring for breakfast and hit his grandmother over the head with an ax.

I totally disagree with the IMDb reviewer who panned this film. Walter Pigeon is just right as the master detective, Nick Carter. He made two more superior Nick Carter B films after this one, but then was on his way to becoming a big Hollywood star. The producers decided to can the series rather than find a suitable replacement. And the Bee man is one of the great movie characters. Donald Meek was a wonderful character actor who could play many roles and this is one of his best. He is a good comic foil for the great detective. The masterful Jacques Tourneur directs with a knowing eye. He knows exactly how to give the audience chills, excitement and mystery in an hour time slot. It was a stroke of genius for the writers to put the bee man in the Nick Carter movies. He is one of the reasons I like to watch the Nick Carter movies more than once.
