This is a low budget Columbia Pictures' flag waver with Bruce Bennett and Edward Norris in the lead roles. It is sort of a low budget knockoff of Hitchcock's successful spy noir, SABOTEUR.
Norris and his chum, George McKay are down and out horse players who get in deep trouble with the cops. McKay, a pickpocket when not playing the ponies, lifts the wallet of a Nazi spy. The Nazis are not amused and are soon on the trail of him and Norris.
To make matters worse, Norris and McKay get busted on a gambling pinch. It seems there was a secret emblem on the Nazis wallet. An emblem the FBI and cops were on the look out for. They think Norris and McKay are mixed up with the Nazi swines. Needless to say the two agree to help the cops and go undercover to help round up the Nazi types.
The female in the mix is Kay Harris, and the head of the Nazi spy ring is the always slimy, Sidney Blackmer. Bruce Bennett plays the man from the FBI.
Quick and to the point light weight fare churned out by the prolific b-film helmsman, Lew Landers. It was nothing unusual for Landers to crank out a dozen low renters a year.
An OK time-waster that speeds by with a 60 minute runtime.
