Enemy Agents Meet Ellery Queen
USA, 1942

William Gargan, Margaret Lindsay, Charley Grapewin
Directed by James P. Hogan


Nazi agents are on the lookout for a cache of precious diamonds, which are being smuggled from Holland to the United States by way of Egypt. The gems are hidden in the mummy case of Queen Tetisheri, on its way to an art gallery. When one of the smugglers is murdered, sleuth Ellery Queen and his police-inspector father try to solve the killing and trace the diamonds in the process.

One from a whole line of detective movies that were based on the long series of Ellery Queen novels that span a period of more than 40 years and were particularly successful in the 1930's and 1940's.
