Checkmate's client in this story is Anne Seymour widow of a U.S. Senator who runs a halfway for newly released women prisoners. But it's on behalf of a new client of her's that Checkmate is engaged.
Seymour's client is Angie Dickinson who served five years for espionage. When she comes out of prison she's greeted with picket lines who follow her to Seymour's halfway house.
She's in real danger all right. Her fellow spies want to see if Angie had done some talking to get her sentence cut so short. They even send Warren Stevens in to do some romancing and Joyce Van Patten as another halfway house client to keep an eye on her.
Dickinson's performance was one of the best of her's I've seen ranking up there with some of her most notable big screen roles. She was just a girl in love with a man who was a spy who used her in all kinds of ways. It's a role that shows toughness and an interesting vulnerability than Anthony George picks up on.
Definitely a must for Angie Dickinson's fans.
