Storyline

Anxious to see some naval action in the Pacific during WWII, Lt. Bill Gordon makes the mistake of telling his new girlfriend, ditzy Elaine Carter, that he was an expert in deciphering codes. Trying to keep him in the states for herself, she convinces her uncle to add him to a unit charged with deciphering the enemy's coded messages. With the murder of his superior, Gibson attempts, with the "help" of Elaine, to root out the spy ring that's been intercepting valuable troop movement information.

Typical "B" Espionage film
25 February 2000 | by (West Virginia) – See all my reviews

This is a rather tame fluff piece concerning WW II codes being broken, stolen, etc. The acting is about what I expected from this cast of MGM "B" actors.

One big caution. Jean Rogers, who did such a great job playing the very sexy Dale Arden in the first two Flash Gordon serials is just awful in this movie. Her character is extremely annoying. She absolutely never lets-up with her overacting. We are supposed to believe that during the height of a World War in what would obviously be a Top Secret code facility, she would be allowed to just pop in and out of any office of her choosing although she has no official function. From that standpoint I'm sorry that I ever watched this film. It has forever changed my perception of Ms. Rogers. Talentwise, she is an extreme lightweight.

Lee Bowman is his usual self, meaning that he is merely adequate.
