I don't tend to spend time having a go at other reviewers on this site as we are all entitled to our opinions.however how on earth can you post a review on a film when you have never seen it.Also to say that Edgar Wallace is forgotten is to say the least controversial,given his contribution ,if any,to King Kong.The thing about Wallace is that he knew when he was on to a good thing.Unknown masterminds.killing.robbing,a law unto themselves.The Frog,The squeaker etc.If a formula works then just use it again.Here Michael Balcon reuses it just as the country is on the verge of war.At the beginning of the film,the identity of the captors is not revealed.however the film ends with a climactic speech aimed fairly and squarly at Hitler.. So this film starts out as a political thriller and ends up as a morale boosting flag waver.
