Great WW II Propaganda Film
20 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film deals with a man called Joe Smith, (Robert Young), who works in a airplane factory and is assigned to working on a new bomb-sight and has knowledge of the blue prints which is top secret. Joe is married to Mary Smith, (Marsha Hunt) and they are a very happy couple until one day Joe is kidnapped by four men who want all the information concerning Joe's knowledge of the bomb-sight plans. Joe is beaten and blind folded and as he is being transported Joe uses all the sounds that he hears while riding in a car to locate just where the kidnappers are taking him. This is a great B film and is very well produced and directed and Robert Young and Marsha Hunt give an outstanding performance.
