| Insects As Carriers
Margaret Lockwood whose beauty cast her in many a regal and aristocratic role plays a scientist in this Eric Ambler story Highly Dangerous. She's an entomologist who goes behind the Iron Curtain to investigate a rumor that the Reds are conducting germ warfare experiments using insects as carriers.

Dane Clark is an American reporter who suspects she's more than a travel agent which is her cover story. Marius Goring the local secret police chief suspects one and all. Wilfrid Hyde-White the local British consul wants Lockwood and Clark to keep on breathing.

Lots of similarities here to the 39 Steps. A bit more serious though. Clark and Lockwood acquit themselves well in the roles which have some humor though.

Would have liked to see Robert Donat in this.
