Famed attorney Melvin Belli served as executive producer of the heady spy melodrama Tokyo File 212. Filmed in its entirety in Japan, the story concerns a communist conspiracy to undermine American soldiers in Korea by plying them with such creature comforts as girls and alcohol. G-2 agent Jim Carter (Robert Peyton) does his best to thwart the Reds, despite the formidable opposition of femme fatale Steffi Novac (Florence Marly). Eventually, Novac is won over by the Good Guys, but not soon enough to emerge unscathed. Tokyo File 212 was co-produced and directed by Dorrell and Stuart McGowan, the sibling screenwriting team who later collaborated on TV's Death Valley Days.
