| Taught tight tale of reporters investigating big business starting a war for profit
Cabal of armament manufacturers conspire to wreck a peace conference and start a war for profit and personal reasons. Standing in their way is a pair of newspaper reporters who stumble upon the plot when a fellow reporter is killed to prevent him telling all. Very good fast moving thriller that feels some of the German crime films from the lat 1920's merged with British thrillers of the period. Its almost Hitchcockian in many ways and one could easily imagine the great director directing it himself. The plot is slightly science fictiony with radio controlled planes and large machines but they are merely window dressing as hero and heroine try to get to the bottom of the plot. While not quite perfect its is a nice dark little thriller perfect for a rainy night.
