English adventurer Captain Skip Morgan (imported American star Forrest Tucker) is contacted by a “Major Hobart” who has an adventurous job for Morgan: go to Hamburg, find the whereabouts of a professor called Pal Kudnic (Arnold Marlé) and smuggle him back to England – all for a generous sum of money.
Taking his shipmate Dusty (Reginald Beckwith) and Lisa (Eva Bartok) – the girl he’s in love with (although it’s not reciprocal) – Morgan crosses the Channel to Hamburg where it soon transpires that a group of Russian thugs are also interested in Kudnic.
Following a helicopter chase, fights with Russian agents, impersonators, and some low key romance, Morgan succeeds in finding Kudnic, a chemist specialising in polymers.
It’s a plodding thriller from the studio that would later become world-renowned as Hammer Films.
