Rocky is still at his night club.
Inspector Henry Fernack:
Now, wait a minute, Simon. Why can't I go to a nightclub? I'll not be party to any rough stuff.
You toddle off to bed like a good boy. These denizens of iniquity are no place for a respectable married man. I'll just drift into Rocky's gin palace and see what's going on.

Another breezy formula entry in "The Saint" series...
GEORGE SANDERS is his usual suave self as the smoothly capable man who falls for WENDY BARRIE aboard a cruise ship, but is unable to really connect with her until he finds out the truth about her while he tries to clear Inspector Fernack (JOHNATHAN HALE) of a murder charge in New York City.
It's a typical "Saint" story with a predictable wrap-up that has the sinners paying for their crimes. It's a neat B-film entry that benefits from good performances from the cast and some appropriately menacing background music by Roy Webb.
Jonathan Hale does a good job of playing the police inspector suspected of several murders and unable to clear himself of the charges until The Saint steps in to help. The story concludes with a downbeat ending that may leave some fans disappointed, but most of the story is done in breezy style with Sanders delivering all of his lines with his usual flair.
