Although the film is taking place in contemporary 1953, vintage stock footage of San Francisco is of an earlier era, about fifteen years previous, revealing pre-WWII automobiles and streetcars all of which had long since disappeared by the time the film was made. See more »
Federal agents get wind of a nefarious plot by enemy agents to smuggle components of an atomic bomb into the United States. The enemy agents plan to then assemble it and blow up a major American city. The feds try to hide the fact that they have captured several of the smugglers in order to find the meeting place and capture the ring leader.
This "B" grade thriller is of interest for its moderately interesting plot. John Ireland gives a good performance as a federal agent determined to catch the enemy agents. Everything else is pretty standard.
