Shortly after the end of World War Two : Professor Gustav Kleinheldt, a member of
the USA Atomic Team, secretly works for a group of renegade Nazis. Later he is 
believed to have died in a car crash, but special agent Larry Cameron proves the 
dead man is a double.  Kleinheldt flees to the Russian occupied part of Germany
and attempts to destroy Paris with a radio-controlled Atom Bomb. Cameron, aided
by British spy George Timothy, foils the plot with only seconds left. 
(Maurice Trace 9.5mm Sound Film Catalogue)

In a remote, mountainous section of Russian-occupied Germany there is an elaborate
post-war Nazi underground dedicated to the achievement of Hitler's dreams of world
supremacy. A group of scientists are working on a method of releasing atom bombs
through remote control. The FBI learns of the plot and sends an operative (William
Gargan)in to foil it. (International Movie Database)

     5. In 1940 William Gargan had been nominated for an Academy Award in the Best
        Supporting Actor category for his performance in "They Knew What They Wanted".
        The winner that year was Walter Brennan who played Judge Roy Bean in "The Westerner".
