Baker is the crack agent of a supersecret British organization. Though he has mishandled cases in the recent past, his superior, Pleasence, gives him one more chance, sending him to find an escaped Russian scientist. Baker engages in the usual James Bond-like excitement, along with
Chaplin and American agent Andrews. The pace never sags, and the resolution matches one of O. Henry's for surprise value. Still, there is a bit too much violence.
