    Synopsis


    Passport to Suez
    Though it's not made readily apparent by the title, Passport to Suez was the 10th entry in Columbia's "Lone Wolf" series. Warren William returns as amateur sleuth Michael Lanyard, aka the Lone Wolf, while Eric Blore is his faithful valet Jamison. In this outing, Lanyard finds himself in Alexandria, Egypt, where he works as an unofficial espionage agent for the Allies. Nazi spies threaten to murder Jamison if Lanyard does not agree to steal valuable military documents from the British Embassy. Among the suspicious characters weaving in and out of the proceedings are Johnny Booth (Sheldon Leonard), a "Rick Blaine" style café proprietor, and Valerie King (Ann Savage) a secret agent posing as a journalist. One of the film's cuter script touches is a trio of spies with "artistic" code names: Rembrandt, Cezanne, and The Whistler. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Do you like old black and white movies? Spy stories with some comic elements? This is a gem with Warren William as the Lone Wolf and Eric Blore as his man Jameson. Sheldon Leonard and Ann Savage co-star in this spy comedy/drama set in Alexandria Egypt during World War II. There are some minor players as espionage specialists who do a respectable job and add flavor to the plot. The creepy "Rembrandt" is the best of these. You'll love to hate him early on.
