Allegedly this is a comedy but you will be hard pressed to find a reason to laugh. At other times it drifts into spy drama but the situations are so contrived that you will be hard pressed to believe.

The widow of a British Army Sergeant Major is working during the early years of World War II in London as a cleaning lady. She thinks a glass eye is her husband's mystical lucky charm and will protect her from any harm or danger. Therefore she decides to pursue Adolph Hitler and save the world.

She manages to travel from London to Berlin, working as a cleaning woman, in just three weeks and then obtain a job as a cleaning woman at Hitler's headquarters. Eventually she manages to infiltrate his empty office and while rehearsing the assassination, she is captured by one of Hitler's top aides.

But, somehow we are transported through time and suddenly the Reich Chancery is bombed by the RAF allowing our heroine and two other spies to escape to London by stealing a Luftwaffe airplane which for some unknown reason is a DC-3.

While be feted by the London press, she discovers the magical glass eye was just one of many in a box with her former husband's military uniform.

Why did the Allies waste their time battling the German Army?
