Audiences who didn't feel like sitting through this melodrama from the Eclipsestudio could rest assured that they knew all about the plot by simply reading the title. Set during a war (never mind which one), the film concentrates on the efforts to expose a clever and elusive spy. A master detective in the Sherlock Holmes mold is hired to track down the miscreant. By determining the unique brand of tobacco preferred by the enemy spy, the detective is able to get to the truth in record time. Somehow, the producers were able to weave a romantic subplot into this 12-minute thriller.
