Nice tattoo
24 October 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bad girl Margaret Hayes (Rita) assumes the identity of reporter Paulette Goddard (Sidney) in order to pass on secrets to her Nazi contact Albert Dekker (The Baron) in Lisbon. She has some plans tattooed onto her back and then covered in invisible ink so nothing shows up. The information can be retrieved by applying another fluid onto her back. She is destined to meet up with Dekker at a Lisbon hotel, but, in a mix-up, it is Goddard who shows up at the hotel and is pursued for the information that she knows nothing about. Fellow reporter Ray Milland (Kenneth) is there to help solve the mystery as all are chased around the hotel.

The film plays out straight-forwardly with no real suspense and far too much comedy that isn't necessarily funny. Especially from the dithering Roland Young (Ronald) as a British envoy. There is an amusing sequence of events that involves Goddard, Dekker and Young at the beginning of the film when both Dekker and Young ask Goddard to remove her clothing. But that is the only stand-out scene apart from the beginning when Hayes gets her tattoo. The film also scores points for the hotel rooms and Goddard's outfits. However, the film is nothing more than an OK time-passer.
