She gets a job at a New York law firm, after it's revealed she can speak German, fluently. As secretary and translator to Ed Leland, she begins to suspect that her boss is involved in espionage work. The two become lovers, and when America officially joins the Allies in fighting Hitler, Linda volunteers to go undercover behind enemy lines. Written by

In scene 5 on the DVD (USO dance), Linda's voice-over from the BBC broadcast refers to news of "American boys were being lost by the thousands on Pacific islands with names like Corregidor and Bataan".

Forget about dying. You're not allowed to die.
