    United States of America.

    Mr J Edgar Hoover looking at large map on his office wall. Official pictures of G-men digging up boxes of explosives which were found in the Florida sands. In a laboratory a man looks at some of the clothing that was found, clothing that German raiders could change into after secret landings. Other spy equipment is also shown, including an exploding pencil! When the lead is knocked off, it sparks and turns into an incendiary.

    J Edgar Hoover is seen sitting at his desk. He talks of German saboteurs landing in America from Nazi submarines. Entrance to Palace of Justice. M/S of one of the witnesses arriving at court - the former fiancee of Herbert Haupt, one of the accused. She tries to hide her face with her handbag as she walks along (nice turban). Prison vans containing the Nazi spies arrive.
