Just boring, but not awful.

What a deception from this Cyril Endfield movie. I expected much more. I nevertheless know that our director made it under a pseudonym, during the fifties and the witches hunt - the anti red era everyone had heard about.

So, he was not so free. I know that. But this movie is talkative, boring, nothing more than a sleepy espionage yarn. Wayne Morris seems lost in the middle of this tepid story. The only interesting thing is that he is not the lead, and his character is rather unusual.

But besides this, you can forget it. The other films made by Endfield are better than this one.
