| Don't know what movie the others saw
I just watched this on TCM expecting to regret the hour and a half I would have lost afterwards. I turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. Low budget, indeed, but within that low budget, they managed to entertain us with good tale of wartime espionage with an intriguing plot. especially noteworthy is the deciphering scene by the team led by the main character. It is a very memorable scene and in a bigger movie would be remembered as a classic.

Yes this movie does swing a little between a romantic comedy and a serious plot, but we have come to see that with later, more expensive, and more famous movies such as Charade with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn. And yes there's the cliche of the cavalry arriving in time to save the day, but even that is explained to adequate satisfaction.

Something tells me the other reviewers expected a masterpiece here. It is not. But it is definitely far from a waste of your time. Sit down, Relax, and enjoy it.

PS, One of the reviewers condemned the performance of Jean Rogers as overacting and annoying. Well, I found that to be really harsh and unfair. To this reviewer she was very cute in her delivery of the role. I guess one man's "annoying" is another man's "cute." The only question one may ask is why her character had such a free roam in the venue of a top secret war deciphering operation. The only explanation of that, i suppose, was that her uncle was a hotshot boss there.
