"I Don't Repair Women's Shoes"
9 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I don't mind no frills films if they are intelligent and have an interesting story. But Criminals Within refers to criminal elements in our Army itself working with enemy agents. This one is barely worth a look.

Our protagonist is Eric Linden who is the brother of a scientist working on something or other, we never really find out exactly what, at an army base. When the brother is killed Linden goes AWQL looking for the killers. The problem is that the agents know he's looking for them because of spies on the base.

The spies work out of a cobbler shop where one of the spies on the base, a real Mata Hari played by Constance Worth sends her shoes to be repaired. He always balks saying he doesn't work on women's shoes, but with a little persuasion because secret information is hidden in them he'll work. Worth is the courier, but who's the boss?

No frills I don't mind, but a coherent story is never a frill.
