Kenneth Seeley, member of the U. S. State Department's Foreign Service Bureau, and Marge Weldon, a morale worker with the bureau, are assigned to an area in Mongolia dominated by an outlaw warlord. The latter captures the village where they reside and when escape is clearly impossible, Seeley blows up the outlaw's headquarters, losing his own life in doing so.Written by

Bill Lundgren is forced to be the "army, navy, and marines" all rolled into one as he infiltrates the underground in communist China.
After learning how to be a good spy, Lundy literally bumps into pretty Virginia Bruce, whom also is a trainee in Washington. Our heroes part, but re-emerge in one another's company when serving in Peking. Frank Ferguson tags along as Lundy's boss. Fine veteran actor Joe Crehan plays a U.S. government official.
Fun at the start with some interesting narrative background concerning the Department of State, though things slow down a bit as the film progresses to the eastern hemisphere.
Worth a look as a period piece from the prime of the Cold War.
