The Singing Secret Agent and the Foreign Spies
This spy adventure takes place in Shanghai, China in 1936, and there are plenty of U.S. Marines around. While movie goers in 1936 would not be surprised by this, I need to tell you about these Marines so you don’t get lost in the shuffle.
Japan attacked Pearl Harbor in December of 1941, but several years before, they attacked China. This is when volunteer U.S. pilots named the Flying Tigers helped defend China from the Japanese. The 4th Marine Regiment was stationed in Shanghai, China beginning in 1927 to help protect the U.S. citizens doing business and living in Shanghai, as well as protecting the U.S. embassy.
In this Shanghai adventure, Bill Lyons, played by actor Phil Regan, is a test pilot for a secret new Navy airplane that will dominate the skies. There has never been an airplane like this, and enemy nations must never get their hands on it. Unfortunately, while Bill is flying the plane near Shanghai, he disappears without a trace, and it is assumed that he crashed into the ocean in a terrible accident.
As the movie opens we see the beautiful daughter of the wealthy and eccentric inventor of the airplane, in a limousine heading for a downtown theater that is performing a follies show with 130 entertainers, . . . including a singer that seems to be Bill Lyons, the missing test pilot. When his fiancé confronts him in the theater, he acts as if he has no idea who she is, and she believes that he must have gotten amnesia from his airplane crash. Soon the two are caught up in a web of spies and traitors, with the singing pilot still proclaiming that he is not a famous test pilot. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
