It's always fun to watch Erich Von Stroheim in a leading role, even in such hurry-scurry nonsense as Rappel Immediat (Immediate Call). The star plays diplomatic courier Captain Stanley Wells, who hopscotches around the hot spots of Europe on a variety of mysterious missions. While Captain Wells has all the fun, his American actress-wife Helen Wells (Mirielle Ballin) is tired of being left home alone. Bored out of her gourd, Helen inaugurates an affair with actor Pierre Deschamps (Roger Duchesne), awakening Wells to his responsibilities at home. If one can accept the Teutonic Von Stroheim as an American international troubleshooter, one should have no problem swallowing the rest of the story.
