Movie Info

In this WW II-era espionage film, a handsome young doctor endeavors to save a former patient, a beautiful young spy, after she is captured by the Nazis. The intern meets the agent after she is taken to the hospital for observation following an accident. For some reason, the injured girl instinctively trusts the doctor and tells him a fantastic tale that the doctor disbelieves. Later a man arrives and claims that he is the girl's father. He and the doctor decide the girl needs psychiatric help and so the doctor brings in a colleague to help her. Unfortunately, the shrink is one of the enemy, as is the girl's "father." Together they get her out of the hospital and spirit her away to a nearby estate. By this time, the doctor finally figures out that the girl is telling the truth and races off to save her. Unfortunately, he too ends up captured and together the two must somehow escape before it is too late.more
