London cabbie Alf Huggins finds himself caught up in the world of espionage and assassination. When a British executive's monopoly of the oil industry is threatened, Alf is set up as the patsy for his attempt on a Middle-Eastern Prince's life.
TV Guide wrote, "nicely done suspense tale of international intrigue sparked with generous doses of comedy from the witty Harker" ; and Sky Movies noted, "Comedy-thrillers with droop-lipped cockney character star Gordon Harker were pure gold at the box-office in Britain of the late Thirties," and went on to call the film "a robust romp."
