A young woman goes missing under strange circumstances. A friend of hers tries to find out what happened and it almost leads to another case of a missing young woman. Dr. Morrell has his hands full trying to solve this case.
The aircraft in the film is a Lockheed L-12A Electra Junior, serial number NC19933. At the end of the film, after it has crashed killing the hero's ex-wife, it re-appears as he is about to fly off and re-marry. The same aircraft features in State of the Union (US 1948) starring Tracy and Hepburn. See more »
The film has attractive leads, but the plot of the film is clumsy and confusing. Essentially Alan Curtis is a private pilot who is contacted at the last moment to fly a group of people to Las Vegas. It turns out that the people on the plane are attesting to sell atomic secrets, and it also turns out that Alan Curtis is a retired FBI agent. The film print was quite good considering that the movie is in the public domain, and the film appeared to have been shot entirely on location, no actual film sets at all, giving the film a somewhat low-budget feel. The film has a good leading cast: Alan Curtis, a former model turned actor, and Evelyn Ankers, Universal Studios horror queen. Jerome Cowan also has a good role as one of the crooked businessmen.
