Storyline

Joey Davis has just been married to Gloria, but before they can have their wedding night, he's called into service in the Navy. He smuggles his new bride into the camp. The camp is under heavy security because the Navy has obtained a new top secret kind of thermostat (and the formula necessary to make it work), which will keep weaponry dry. There is a murder--someone is trying to steal the device, and the newlyweds become involved in the investigation. The major suspect is Gordon Shane with whom the lead investigator has had dealings in the past. The killer has left an essential clue with Gloria, but she doesn't realize it yet. Is Shane the culprit; and if not, can the mystery be solved before the real killer murders Gloria? Written by James Knoppow

Good "C" picture from the Golden Age
26 June 2003 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

Fans of the old "B" "C" and even "D" movies (yes, they made them back then) will enjoy this movie. It was like the television of its day: under an hour and a learning experience for cast and crew. It's fun to see people who later became very well known in early screen roles. This is important history, and of a type that will never be seen again.
