Fighting for the return of Life, Laughter, and Love, by Jove!
As our adventure begins, we are in London during World War Two, and bombs are dropping from the sky, turning buildings into rubble. An unexploded bomb is discovered in the rubble of a building, and while most people are running away from the ticking bomb, one man slowly walks up to the giant bomb and straddles the beast as if it was a hobby horse.
Robert Donat, as British Captain Terrence Stevenson, will carefully defuse the bomb so that it is no longer a threat. He is then ordered to the General’s office on the double. Captain Stevenson is a very special Brit, and is about to go on a suicide mission that will make diffusing a live bomb seem like child’s play.
Before the war, as a young man, he spent time in Romania learning their language, and then went to university in Germany to become a chemical engineer. It seems that the enemy has built a large, secret factory that is about to create a poison gas bomb, and that secret factory must be destroyed, even if Captain Stevenson does not survive the attempt.
Without a moment’s hesitation, the British Captain agrees and is soon assuming the identity of a Romanian Chemical Engineer named Jan Tartu. He must convince the enemy that he is a loyal subject of the Führer, and he must convince the Czechoslovakia underground fighters that he is an enemy of the Führer. He is likely to be killed by either side before he can destroy the secret chemical plant, but even if he does manage to infiltrate that factory, he will probably die in the effort to destroy it. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
