only give you indications,

Never a word that

might incriminate them.

So you see, I need a fellow

Who's sort of bright and reads signs.

Thanks very much, but

this is my wedding night...

The man you're looking for

Has completely disappeared.

I don't know what his name is...

I don't even know what he looks like...

But if the gestapo have got him,

We may have to reorganize

our whole setup.

Well, we all have our

little troubles, Peter.

Good night.

I'm asking you to do

something of vital importance.

It's only fair to tell you

That there's an element

of risk attached to it

To both yourself and your wife.

The man you're looking for

Has complete details of the

new German secret weapon.

Secret weapon?

I thought that was just Nazi ballyhoo.

It really exists.

Ever heard of a magnetic mine?


What is it?

Underwater mine

That attracts itself

to ships by magnetism.

It's an ingenious idea.

It's more than that.

Imagine what that could

do to our lifelines.

Remember the last war?


How does it work?

I wish we knew. Find that man,

And he'll give you

the electrical formula.


Then your scientists will figure

out a way to counteract it.

It's our only chance.

I believe you can make the grade

If you two are willing to take the risk.

Well, if I know Frances,

she'll want to help.

Anyone would in a case like this.


Don't let her know how serious it is.

Women are inclined to

overplay their hand.

Just tell her you're

doing me a little favor

By hunting up someone

we've lost sight of.

Oh, hello, dear.

Come on in.

Frances, this is Peter Galt.

Congratulations. I'm sorry I

couldn't get to the wedding.

I've told you about Peter.

We were undergraduates together.

Yes, I know.

Richard's very fond of you,
