Released shortly after the similar Columbia wartime mellers Submarine Raider and Parachute Nurse, Atlantic Convoy is set on the coast of Iceland. Civilian weatherman Carl Hansen (John Beal) is suspected of being a Nazi spy after an unexpected enemy attack on an Allied convoy. With the help of nurse Lida Adams (Virginia Field), Beal not only proves his innocence but also rounds up a gang of Fifth Columnists. Bruce Bennett costars as a fearless fighter pilot, while Victor Kilian is the rather obvious "secret" villain. Cheaply and hastily assembled, Atlantic Convoy benefits from the believable performances by its main characters.
