Paulette Goddard is being posted to Lisbon, to assist ace newsman Ray Milland. Meanwhile, a gang of crooks have stolen some secret plans, and decided the best way to hide them is to tattoo them in invisible ink on Margaret Hayes' back. They also come up with the fiendish plan to convince everyone that Miss Hayes is Miss Goddard. This fails, so when Paulette gets to Lisbon, everyone thinks she is Miss Hayes, including spy masters Albert Dekker, Roland Young(!) and Cecil Kellaway(?).
Miss Goddard gets off a few wise cracks. Mr. Milland slugs Miss Hayes and the whole thing looks like someone wanted to make Sidney Lanfield eat crow, and so assigned him to this. I understand Buddy De Sylva was busy at this point trying to bring Preston Sturges to heel. He might have spent his time better on this production.
