Synopsis

Double-bill of classic films starring Boris Karloff. In 'The Ape' (1940), Karloff plays a deranged scientist trying to find a cure for polio by extracting the spinal fluids from gorillas, who undergoes a hideous transformation after testing the serum on himself. In 'British Intelligence' (1940), Karloff plays Valdar, the butler in the household of a top-ranking British official during the First World War, who secretly passes information on to the Germans. Joining him is the seductive Helene Von Lorbeer (Margaret Lindsay), master spy for the German intelligence network, but which one is the real spy and which is the double-agent?
