Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Robert Simmons stars as a secret agent assigned to the Tangier beat (hence the title). Simmons is assisted by songstress June Powell. The head of a gun-running gang captures Simmons and Powell, and for a while the outlook is decidedly grim. But Powell effects an escape and notifies the police. Slow going until its final reel, Tangier Assignment is a good example of the sort of espionage fare that audiences were willing to accept until being spoiled by James Bond in the sixties.
