Starring Boris Karloff & Margaret Lindsay
Set in the middle of World War I British forces on the front line are being slaughtered because of a German spy ring operating in London. It turns out that the British Government itself has been infiltrated and the British Secret Service is on the case. The script is written in double entendre so that as the actors move from scene to scene the viewers are kept off balance. Boris Karloff and Margaret Lindsay play two spies caught up in a cat and mouse game with the British Secret Service throughout the film. Not until the end of the last reel will the German spy be revealed in this excellent early thriller.
