Silent film stalwart Neil Hamilton heads the cast of the PRC "special" Federal Fugitives. Hamilton plays secret service officer Captain Madison, assigned to investigate the deaths of three of his colleagues in highly suspicious plane crashes. Posing as an airplane manufacturer, Madison keeps a watchful eye over two sinister types (Victor Varconi, Charles Wilson), who are desirious of taking over "his" factory. The villains manage to slip Madison a mickey and send him aloft in a doomed plane, but the film's resident Mata Hari-style seductress falls in love with our hero and rescues him instead. The heroine is played by a starlet Doris Day--not, it must be emphasized, the same Doris Day who later starred with Rock Hudson in a series of sex comedies in the 1950s and 1960s.
