Top U.S. government spy-smasher John Baxter (Ralph Bellamy) does just that as he is aided by Eleanor Dunlap (Fay Wray) and companion federal agent Ted Hall (Regis Toomey) while being highly abetted by top enemy agent Dr. L. B. Carter (Walter Kingsford) and his minions of gang members and henchmen.Written by

"Smashing the Spy Ring" is very standard stuff. It's a typical action B-movie of the era...one that manages to get the story told compactly and entertainingly but with little in the way of subtlety or originality. It's basically a simple time-passer.
When the story begins, a government agent dedicated to catching spies is murdered. Two agents (Ralph Bellamy and Regis Toomey) decide to enact a plan in order to prove that a local sanitarium is run by spies. So, they create a fake mishap during the testing of a new poisonous gas and have John Baxter (Bellamy) pretend to be the professor in charge....hoping that his 'amnesia' would make him an attractive target for the spies. Of course, there's bound to be a monkeywrench that appears soon after and threatens to expose the plan!
Predictable fun....with decent acting and a brisk plot. Not at all a must-see but you could do worse!
