| Nice early look at Jane Wyman
This is now a very obscure film which is only somewhat interesting. It is meant to be a spy story with a little polo thrown in. The spy intrigue angle is only made somewhat interesting and the polo is hard to watch with such an old grainy film. The acting is generally poor, William Hall has kind of a creepy toothy smile that makes him look silly in this role. The studio was just trying Hall out as a leading man and apparently he failed because he was relegated to minor roles for the most part after this film. Some of the supporting actors are quite good, though, and Jane Wyman comes across quite well in a small role with no real dialog to work with. The original story by F.V.W. Mason is quite a bit more interesting than this watchable but not particularly recommended film.
