Right up there with the best from Monogram, PRC, Victory and Grand National.
Not surprising since it used a plot all of the above used often, and just relocated it to England. And used glory-days-long-gone Charles Farrell as the star...who quickly followed it up with like fare from America's Poverty Row.

This Grosevenor Film Productions production ( proving you didn't need a Gower Gulch address to compete in this genre)was released in the U.S. as "Bombs Over London" and dealt with the machinations of a band or armament manufacturers who are trying to plunge Europe in war. (Europe was already there.)

Fritz Kortner chews the scenery as a scheming political tool of the armament ring. Charles Farrell is a newspaper cartoonist and Margaret Vyner a reporter on the same newspaper. Kortner, representing a European nation, with a "G" as the first letter (Gruevilnaz, or something), brings about a deliberate breach among various nations at a Peace Conference (held in the War Room), and, on top of that, he has employed (from the Position Wanted section of the newspaper)an inventor who has a radio-controlled system that directs bombing planes and they plan to bomb London.

Farrell gets involved after Vyner's brother, hot on the trail of the armament ring, is murdered, and uncovers the plot. But...is it too late?
