He gains full confidence of entire Nazi high command, including Führer Adolf Hitler, save one suspecting German officer. All the while, the spy passes war-winning information to Allies assisted by two loyal Berlin contacts, first a man, then a nightclub singer. A war drama with love-interest relationship and a cliffhanger finale. Also memorable is frightening Adolf Hitler always portrayed from behind, face unseen, but with snarling, tyrannical voice.

The credits read inspired by A.P. Scotland's "The London Cage". But in Scotland's own words "I had been a German officer... but that was from 1903 to 1907 during the Hottentot Wars in South Africa. True, also, I had secretly worked and successfully fooled the Germans and worked behind their lines... but that was alongside the Kaiser's Army in 1916." In WW1 & WW2 Scotland served as an intelligence officer interrogating captured German POW's. This culminated in his interrogating suspected war criminals at the end of the war. See more
