One day his long-estranged wife--who had walked out on him years before and taken up with a string of boyfriends--shows up claiming to want a reconciliation, but soon the scientist finds himself in the center of what appears to be a plot to steal his secrets.

Weak low budget espionage thriller, good idea but poor delivery.
I was lucky enough to meet Don Porter on a golf course once and he was a genuine nice guy. He was a little shy about his career, but later when I looked him up I figured he should have been more proud. But now, after seeing this 59m "B" film where he was the star I think maybe this may have been why he was not egotistical. This little film suffers from slow pacing and direction, corny dialogue delivered in a stilted manner by uninspired actors. It could be a case where the producer thought over powering music and the potential of the idea of nuclear energy expanded this mostly stage bound drama. Unfortunately it plays more like a soap opera than a thriller. I gave it a 5 out of 10 mostly because I thought the idea for the story had merit and deserves to be remade and maybe this time the music could be turned down a little.
