Detective Nick Carter is brought in to foil spies at the Radex Airplane Factory, where a new fighter plane is under manufacture.
With this speech, Nick Carter derides three of his contemporary movie detectives: Nick Charles, Charlie Chan, and Sherlock Holmes: "Look, I'm not a storybook detective with, uh, a highball glass in one hand (Nick Charles) and, uh, a Chinese proverb (Charlie Chan) in another, nor can I tell you from the ashes of a man's cigar (Sherlock Holmes) that he, uh, had kippered herring for breakfast and hit his grandmother over the head with an ax.
They call me "The Weagle." That's a combination of the wasp and an eagle.
No screen credit is given to Ormond G. Smith and John R. Coryell, who created the character of Nick Carter for pulp magazines.
