France 1917 (time of World War One, in case you wondered): All the efforts of the british army to attack the Germans are thwarted when the Germans seem to anticipate each & every of the British's moves. This can mean only one thing: The Brits have been infiltrated, by Germany's top-agent von Spindler, so the Brits send pilot Frank Bennett (Bruce Lester) to pick up British top agent Williams from behind enemy lines (& of course, nobody knows what Williams looks like). But Bennet's plane is shot down & he wakes up in an army hospital to look into the eyes of nurse Helen (Margaret Lindsay), whom he immediately falls in love with. The next day she is gone.

The German headquarters: Top agent Frances Hautry (Margaret Lindsay - again) is ordered to go to England as a German refugee & seek shelter at Arthur Bennett's (Holmes Herbert) place, him being the foreign minister - & Frank's father too. There she is to make contact with von Strindler.

... of course, Frances is actually a double agent to capture Strindler for the British, but only her & colonel Yeats (Leonard Mudie) know that. Soon she is contacted by a German agent, Valdar (Boris Karloff), Bennett's servant, & it soon turns out that pretty much everyone is working for either the British, the Germans or both, even Valdar has a job on the side working for Scotland Yard uncovering German spies. Before long, even Frances is found out to be a German spy, but not yet arrested since there is no real evidence yet.

Finally, when the cabinet is meeting in the Bennett household, & Frank returns home from the war & immediately recognizes Frances as nurse Helen (& she has to reveal herself to him as top agent Williams), Valdar is revealing his devilish plan to Helen: During an airraid that is to start any minute now, he plans to set a timebomb to blow up the entire British cabinet in one go. & yes, Valdar really is really von Strindler. But Frances/Helen/Williams cabn thwart his plans, get rid of the bomb before it can do any damage, & in the end, Valdar/von Strindler is killed by a German bomb himself during the air raid.

& finally, Frances is revealed to be a British top agent & she & she & Frank can finally become a romantic couple.


In British Intelligence, Boris Karloff gives his usual great performance, & most of the other actors are pretty good either, plus the film does feature some impresive footage of bombings ... but the story of the movie is rather bad, pretty much everybody at one point or another turns out to be agent, double-agent, triple- or quadruple-agent, to a point where the audience stops caring, as many of the double-agent characters are totally insignificant to the story. Not really good.
