| Find the saboteurs
The Secret Command made it into Oscar contention with a nomination for Best Special Effects. Still this World War II flag waver has not worn well over the years.

Pat O'Brien who was a former war correspondent and now secret government agent takes a job at a shipyard where his brother Chester Morris is now the hiring boss. O'Brien seems changed to both Morris and Ruth Warrick a girl both of them courted back in the day. Biggest change of all is that O'Brien is married to Carole Landis and has two kids. That does not sound like the rollicking hell raising brother Morris knew back in the day.

It's suspected that the Nazis have planted saboteurs at the shipyard and O'Brien's mission is to find out who they are and most important who the ringleader is. He's also getting used to home life with Carole Landis and who wouldn't have a hard time keeping his mind on the mission.

A few familiar faces are in the cast in roles suitably comfortable for them. I do confess that the ringleader does turn out to be a surprise.

Still the subject of sabotage was covered far better in the Alfred Hitchcock classic Saboteur. It holds up where this one does not.
