Determined, independent Bridie Quilty comes of age in 1944 Ireland thinking all Englishmen are devils. Her desire to join the IRA meets no encouragement, but a German spy finds her easy to recruit. We next find her working in a pub near a British military prison, using her sex appeal in the service of the enemy. But chance puts a really vital secret into her hands, leading to a chase involving Bridie, a British officer who's fallen for her, a German agent unknown to them both, and the police...paralleled by Bridie's own internal conflicts.

Manx Hotel Manageress:
I hope this doesn't mean that someone has escaped from the internment camp and is staying at the hotel.
If the food I've had here is anything to go by, they're more likely to escape from the hotel and beat it for the internment camp.

A feisty young Irish woman brought up to hate the English plans to join the IRA to put her hatred into action. It veers unevenly between comedy and thriller. The comedy is not funny and the thrills are nothing to write home about. However, the biggest problem is that the script lacks a narrative flow. It seems that the story is being made up as it goes along, rambling on without rhyme or reason. This film and "Black Narcissus" helped Kerr become a star, paving her way to a Hollywood career. She's fine, but Howard is somewhat bland as a British agent. Launder, who started as a writer and wrote "The Lady Vanishes," seems less comfortable in the director's chair here.
