In this short propaganda piece illustrating the perils of careless talk, information dropped during an innocent conversation in a cafe travels through a network of spies and finally results in a U-boat sinking a British vessel.


This was one of a trio of films made at the beginning of the war, produced by Britain's Ministry of Information in order to educate the British people about the dangers of loose talk and to alert them to the possibility of spies in unlikely places.
