Storyline

Noted scientist Dr. J. P. Hartley has been kidnapped by foreign agents. Captain Midnight, Ikky, and Tut determine he'd been working with extreme cold to make a metal that could withstand practically anything. An ice sheet in the desert tips the guys off to the doctor's location. As Captain Midnight tries to revive the frozen scientist in the spies' icy lair, the military drops an atomic bomb nearby at the government's atomic testing grounds.

Fun 50's Sci-fi

Captain Midnight – 1955 -The Frozen Men War hero, secret agent and top pilot, Captain Midnight fights America's enemies.

Captain Midnight, Richard Webb, along with sidekick, Sid Melton are guests of the Army at an atomic bomb test. Webb gets a message to hurry back to the Secret Squadron headquarters.

A scientist, Pat O'Hara, is missing along with his secret papers. It seems some nasty red spies, Jack Tesler, Leonard Berman, have snatched O'Hara.

Using the amazing, "SILVER DART" aircraft, Webb and Melton track the man down. O'Hara is being held at a lab out in the middle of the atomic test area.

He was working on a new metal to be used in new rockets etc. Needless to say the reds want the substance.

While rescuing O'Hara, Webb gets locked in the underground lab. Compounding Webb's troubles is that the Army is going to test a new a-bomb that day. And the test area is right above the lab.

Needless to say, Webb and O'Hara survive while the red spies get roasted in the test.

Great 1950's fun! That is a hell of a car Webb tools around in. (b/w)
