Storyline

Rejected by the Army because of a bad heart, Eddie Miller, small-time gambler, promises his girl, Edith Cassell, that he will get a good job. Meanwhile, his pal, Chuck Brown,a pickpocket, lifts a wallet which contains almost $2,000 plus a strange platinum-and-gold medal. It has the mysterious Condor-and-Dove design that identifies the leader of a Nazi sabotage ring. He intends to turn it over to the police but is picked up before he can. Government agent John Cronin recognizes the wallet but Eddie sticks to his story that he found it on the street. Cronin permits him to escape, hoping that he will, somehow, lead him to the Nazi leader. Written by Les Adams ,longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

The Nazis are no match for 2 bit crims in America
13 April 2007 | by (Adelaide, South Australia) – See all my reviews

Neat little tale of Nazi agents in USA with the task of sabotaging major industry employed in the war effort. The Nazi commander has an identifying medallion, which he is silly enough to keep within his wallet, this he frequently flashes around showing large sums of money enclosed. Naturally no self respecting pickpocket can resist such a target, and just as naturally, in an unrelated raid, the police come across the medallion. Hence the hunt by the authorities for the man who owns the wallet is commenced.

The pickpocket and his pal, although shady, are true blue Yankee doodle dandy's, and set about to track down the dirty Nazi creep, and by doing so, help get themselves into the authorities "good books".

There is no Olivier here, just the usual bunch of B & C movie stalwarts, all putting the gasps and punches in the correct places. All in all a worthy time filler if WW2 propaganda movies are your cup of tea, that is if you manage to find a copy or showing of this nearly forgotten movie.
