Miss V From Moscow was singled out by B-film historian Don Miller as "one of the worst movies ever made by any standards, certainly the worst movie of its year." Seen today, the film seems to be simply another mediocre wartime meller from the cramped studios of PRC. Lola Lane plays Soviet secret agent Vera Marova, who bears a striking resemblance to a Nazi spy. Taking advantage of this, she confounds the German high command in occupied Paris, and also comes to the rescue of downed American flyer Steve Worth (Howard Banks). Much of the dialogue is hilariously inept (perhaps intentionally so), with some of the biggest yocks provided by Noel Madison as a would-be Goebbels.
