British Intelligence – Decoded

British Intelligence is a 1940 movie starring Boris Karlov and Margaret Lindsay. Join us as we decode the twists and turns of this spy movie.

BRITISH INTELLIGENCE is a movie starring Boris Karloff!   Not as Frankenstein, or in the Bride of Frankenstein, or The Mummy, no!   He scared all of us for so long in these movies – but here . . . today. . .  we are looking at Karloff as a spy in none other than the 1940 movie, BRITISH INTELLIGENCE!

In short, the basis of the story is that in World War I, the British are making plans to counter the German offense after the German invasion of Poland.  They are making plans but somehow the Germans are aware of their plans and are pounding the British troops as a result -as many casualties are resulting in the Germans somehow knowing the British plans. 

And no one knows HOW the Germans are discovering these plans.   So, James Yeats, played by Leonard Mudie, as head of British Intelligence – must get to the bottom of this!  Arthur Bennett, the cabinet minister, assembles the powers for regular meetings at his home, for planning, and for figuring out how the Germans are getting their plans. 

BRITISH INTELLIGENCE is full of intrigue, espionage, double-crosses, and real spy stuff. It is extremely well done. It stars Boris Karloff as Valdar, Margaret Lindsay as  Helene Von Lorbeer, Bruce Lester as Frank Bennett,  Leonard Mudie as James Yeats and Holmes Herbert as Arthur Bennet. Therefore, you know the acting is superb!

In this episode, we point out some interesting connections, and things to definitely look out for. We’ll enhance your viewing experience!  Let’s find out how much intelligence the British have.
