| Saving the Day But Not This Movie
This high-speed, competent Warner B movie of how Craig Stevens becomes a G-Man, hunts down American Nazis and courts Faye Emerson in fifty-seven minutes is a rote effort that has not aged particularly well.

Robert Warwick, who had been a leading star in the 1910s and later a member of Preston Sturges' stock company, offers an engaging performance as the suave Nazi mastermind and James Van Trees' camera-work suggests that the noir influence was catching on -- although that may have been studio head Jack Warner's cheapskate habit of turning out lights. However Raymond Schrock's screenplay from a Seton Miller story does not offer much, nor do the use of montage and newspaper headlines to move the plot. This is one time-waster you needn't waste your time on.
