Director Roy William Neill, best known for his work on Universal's Sherlock Holmes series of the 1940s, occasionally made side trips to England during the 1930s. Neill's Anything to Declare? stars Claude Hulbert as an eccentric inventor named Claude Fishlock. Our hero has just developed a new device that will prove useful in construction of military tanks. When the device is stolen by foreign spies, Hulbert is forced to smuggle himself into an unnamed European country in order to retrieve his invention. If you think the name "Claude Fishlock" is funny, you'll roll on the floor when you hear some of the other character monikers in Anything to Declare?: Pete Nutter, Captain Torrent, Sgt. Major Hornett, and so on and so forth.
