Nazi officer: "The Russian Army is annihilated!" --- Miss V: "What!? Again!?"

This is a quintessential WWII B-grade movie and, being cheaply made, it is fun! These were the days when Soviet Russia was a much admired ally, and Lola Lane plays Vera Marova "Miss V" (a Soviet spy), who resembles a top Nazi female (Greta Heller) who is permanently indisposed. Moscow smuggles her into Nazi Germany where she infiltrates the Gestapo and the Wehrmacht. They set her up in an elegant apartment which is unfortunately staffed by "Minna", the horse-faced former maid of the real Greta Heller. Knowing that she is an imposter, Minna proceeds to try and undo Miss V.

The movie is full of WWII-era zingers against the Nazi war machine, delivered by Lola Lane with an inimitable sense of timing. One of the famous Lane sisters, Lola has a marvellously rich contralto voice.

Miss V comes to the aid of some downed fliers and tries to aid them in escaping. Simple plot. Exciting at times.

One of the funniest things in the film is the hat Miss V wears for the last 10 minutes of the movie. It is a sort of GIANT beret, which is easily twice the size of the diminutive star's head.

Another remarkable thing is how much Soviet Russia resembles southern California... there are a couple of hayride scenes in which this is apparent.

If you're not in a mood for a serious film - this can be fun. For its genre as a B-grade war film - I give it a 7.
