No sooner said than done. Returing to their base, the Americans are captured by the Reds and in their escape and recapture, come upon the geologist, who is a prisoner at the secret base. Complications are added by the additions to the American party of a Chinese orphan boy, Jake (Hayward Hoo Soo), a pregnant widow, Ellen Philips (Maura Murphy), of a third airline employee Swede Philips (Don C. Harvey) , and the American's pretty French secretary Cleo (Jean Willes). With some difficulty, the Americns escape from the base, with information vital to the success of the French cause. In a finale of mostly newsreel clips, Mulvaney and Marshall return with French paratroopers to destroy the Communist base and revenge the murder of Jake. Written by Les Adams See less
