Nothing special

The story has already been told by Long Horn, who has read it in a library dictionary, according to him. The only interesting aspect of this feature is it's a rare gem from Universal Studios vaults. And also directed by Roy William Neill, who also made the famous Sherlock Holmes series for the big screen, starring Basil Rathbone. MADAME SPY is typical of Universal films, a slight mix up of comedy, action, romance and of course spy, war melodrama, as far this was shot in 1942. Nazis were everywhere in these days.

I won't say it's boring. But if you don't like this kind of stuff in particular, you can live without it.

I don't know what to say else...
