A producer devises an elaborate gala premiere for his latest anti-Nazi propaganda epic, The Earth in Flames. It is slated to open in Washington, D.C. and he has his press agents working overtime to produce an enormous hoopla of secrecy and publicity stunts. They come up with the plan of hiring a trio of "spies" who are to send disturbing threats just before the showing to put the audience on edge. Unfortunately, three real agents are trying to exchange the print of the new film with a pro-Nazi propaganda film. These fellows try hard, but they prove to be bungling idiots of espionage and their botched attempts provide most of the fun.
