Sam (Preston Foster) is sent to look over the accounts at a bank managed by Earl (John Shepperd). He finds nothing unusual and is preparing to return home when Earl's interfering secretary Betty (Anabel Shaw) points out to him that £3,000 has gone missing. Can Sam get to the bottom of this embezzlement....?

Get past her strange accent and Signe Hasse is good as Earl's wife "Francine". Preston Foster also does well in the lead role although we are asked to bend belief with his character when he digs into his own pocket to pay for someone else's debt. We also have to put up with a do-gooder, jobsworth, goody-goody, tell-tale tit in Anabel Shaw's portrayal of Betty. I hate people like her! She sticks her nose in when she really shouldn't care.

Although the film moves along at a good pace, nothing ever seems to happen. It's just all a bit boring........and a bit confusing.
