And the day I watched it, it was raining. It's a good programmer which killed some time until dinner and, besides, I couldn't mow the lawn anyway.
"Counter Espionage" has a recognizable cast who move the story along in an entertaining fashion, along the way striving to overcome a mundane plot which tries the audience's patience with plot contrivance after contrivance, but I just went with it with it since it was raining out.
I Always enjoy the dulcet tones of Warren William as The Lone Wolf and he's aided and abetted here by Eric Blore, his simpering man Friday, and Hillary Brooke as a heroine for a change. Lloyd Bridges has an unbilled role as a henchman.
I suppose it could have been better but at 75 minutes it doesn't wear out its welcome, and it's odd not even Edward Dmytryk could punch it up for a higher rating.
