The film opens with a German air-raid over the skies of London, and moves to the attempts of the F.B.I. and Scotland Yard investigators trying to circumvent the attempts of a sabotage ring dedicated to impeding the flow of American airplanes and flying fortresses to Britain(on FDR's Lend-Lease program since the United States was not yet at war against Germany and Italy.) Tim Hanley is an American agent, posing as a lawyer connected with the United States Embassy in London, and Reggie Oliver, a Scotland Yard detective, posing as a music critic, who has a hard time understanding American slang. Both are keeping their eye on Carla Nillson, a famous singer, whom they suspect of espionage. They all meet in London, then in Lisbon, and eventually in New York City, where Carla sings on the radio under the auspices and sponsorship of Siudney Grenner, a wealthy candy manufacturer, who is in reality the head of the sabotage gang. Miss Nillson may or may not know that some of the songs she sings over the radio are in code, and give instructions to the enemy operatives about airplane shipments to England. And even if she doesn't know, will she still be implicated and subject to being arrested by Tim, whom she has fallen in love with? And if she is arrested, will Tim be waiting for her when the Allies defeat the Nazis?
London, at the beginning of the Second World War. Following a chance meeting two special agents, Tim Hanley, an American, and Reggie Oliver, an Englishman, join efforts to trap Carla Nilsson, a gorgeous blond night club singer, suspected of belonging to a gang of airplane saboteurs. After some bickering, the two men decide to follow her to the USA. In Sandpoint, Tim meets Grenner, an important confectionery and chocolate-maker and good friend of Carla's, around whom a group of suspicious-looking types keeps hovering. Meanwhile, Reggie also acts but either in hiding or in disguise. Are Grenner and his friends the saboteurs? Will Hanley and Oliver manage to dismantle the organization? What will become of Clara?...
