The Russian Spy, the Japanese Spy, and the Man in the Middle

In 1938 America was not at war. It wouldn’t be until December 7, 1941 that Japan would attack Pearl Harbor and thrust America into the Second World War. But in 1938 Japan was already at war with China. 1930’s Japan was determined to rule the world, and conquering their neighbor China was the first step. Attacking the Pacific Islands, including Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, would come in a couple of years, but first it was China that must be destroyed.

As our adventure opens we meet a doctor and his young nurse Irene, played by Lynda Grey. She is working in a refuge for Chinese war orphans that is operated by the Red Cross. Her brother is an airplane pilot, and the young nurse and the doctor look into the sky and watch as an airplane piloted by a Russian spy shoots her brother out of the sky, crashing nearby.

The doctor and nurse find her brother and bring him to the orphanage, while the Russian spy lands nearby. Her brother gives her half of an amulet – a piece of jewelry that is worth five million dollars if it is taken to San Francisco and presented to the person with the other half. As the Russian spy approaches the orphanage to steal the amulet, Irene quickly gets in her car and heads to Shanghai, where she hopes to board a ship for San Francisco.

Unfortunately, Shanghai is a very dangerous place during this war, and her journey will not be easy or safe. Spies from Russia, Japan, and maybe from America, are all focused on finding the lady with the amulet. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
