A retired gangster hiding out in Chile gets roped into working with Nazis counterfeiting Colombian money in this wartime CRIME DOES NOT PAY two-reeler.
John Litel is the Chilean policeman who touts the system of universal registration that makes tracking down bad guys so easy, and who gets to shoot the bad guys. Van Johnson also appears as dark-haired US agent. It's wartime propaganda, intended to tout cooperation between the governments of the Western Hemisphere.
Although this series had begun as an interesting experiment and produced some fine melodrama, by this point it had lost much of its early zip. This one feels like a feature cut down to only the scenes and dialogue that serve to advance the plot.... and give the good guys the chance to shoot the bad guys.
