Summary: In this espionage drama, Audie Murphy plans an secret agent who is slated to rendezvous with a German scientist in Cairo. There the agent gets involved with the scientist's daughter and discovers that her father is busy designing a moon rocket that can be used as a weapon. This leads the agent to break into the scientist's heavily guarded lab and destroy the plans for the missile. There he meets up with radical Moslems who insist on destroying the weapon themselves. He soon discovers a trap. To escape, he abducts the scientist's daughter and heads for Italy where Egyptian agents capture him, place him in a trunk and send him on a plane back to Cairo. Italian guards manage to capture the Egyptians. When they open the trunk, they discover the body of an Egyptian guard, not that of the agent. Meanwhile, the super spy has boarded the plane containing the captured girl. He manages to commandeer the plane, fly back to Egypt and ensure a happy ending for all involved.
