Agent Casey Reed is tasked to find a missing prince (played by an un-credited Michael Barry) of the small Arab nation Thamen who was kidnapped by Communists who want to prevent him from signing an agreement that would allow the United States build a missile base there. Reed masquerades as a singer in a nightclub, but he is captured by the Communists, who plan to kill the two of them in order to blame the kidnapping on the Americans.
Leonard Maltin described it as a "Harmless B film about Anglo-American agents rescuing a kidnapped Arabian prince.", while giving it 2.5 out of 4 stars.
