Lloyd Bridges plays a flying ace war hero who gets sucked into a counterfeiting scheme by opposing gangs of crooks. Bridges is used as a decoy by the Feds to play both gangs off against one another over a hunt for counterfeiting plates.
Fast paced programmer moves swiftly featuring pithy dialogue and about five different interior sets. "Secret Service Investigator" is at its best when flash-bulb eyed George Zucco is purring threats while Jack Overman and Jack Kellogg lay the muscle on Bridges. In fact, Bridges spends a majority of time getting pistol whipped, sapped or slapped until the crooks are wrapped up as they are in the midst of double-crossing one another and the real Feds tie them up
Weakest moment is an insipid sequence with Bridges trying to court Lynne Roberts by telling her son, Tommy Ivo, a thoroughly inane war story: the kid doesn't buy it and neither do we. Production values are equivalent to a luncheon car ride through the McDonald's drive-thru window, but who cares.
