American Elizabeth Taylor visits her friend Honor Blackman in London and is immediately swept away by a British soldier (Robert Taylor) with whom she falls in love. It isn’t until after their whirlwind marriage, however, that she starts to suspect that he’s not entirely honest with her. At first she thinks he’s cheating with another woman, but eventually she discovers the worst truth of all, that he’s a spy for the Soviets! Liz stars in her first adult role and does a pretty good job with it, but the direction by Victor Saville is cheap and the script eventually falls prey to dramatic cliches. Much of the performance quality come off shallow, even though the plot is intriguing to a point.
