On the run from her murderous wartime partner in crime Hermann, Lora hides on a small cargo boat captained by heroic Rolf. The crew of three, Georg, Dina and Braun, quickly accepts her. But, both Hermann and the police are on her trail.
Unpublished Story is a propaganda piece with almost a documentary type setting in parts when it shows the effects of the Nazi bombings on Londoners.
Bob Randall (Richard Greene) and Carole Bennett (Valerie Hobson) are journalists investigating a pacifist group called People For Peace. The group is in effect taken over by Nazi fifth columnists to spread misinformation that resistance is futile.
Basil Radford plays Lamb, the man from the ministry with the habit to spike any news story not in the national interest.
It is an intriguing look at the peace movement at the time and the government at the time would had been aware that some unsavoury types would attempt to hijack such groups.
The film is rather uneven, you see brutal effects of the bombings but this is mixed with humour which sits rather inappropriately. The story of the secret Nazi infiltrators is not well told and at times appears confusing with little action regarding the main plot.
