Synopsis:
After a brief discussion with a man claiming to be the organizer of the photo-shoot she has just completed, model Cairo Jones realizes that he is in fact Sigmund Schyle. A shady German with possible Nazi ties, Schyle has been on the trail of she and her estranged German husband, Saber von Tigron, since fleeing Germany after the war. Schyle's motives appear to be to ensnare Jones and her husband in an effort to steal, or blackmail, their considerable wealth.

Jones overcomes Schyle, but is now more accutely aware than ever that she must clear her husband's name in order to secure her personal safety. To this end, she engages the services of one of her husband's toughest critics, newspaper reporter, Steve Racy. He has just announced a $5000 reward for any information leading to the capture of von Tigron, so she does him one better. She offers him $100,000 to use his leads to help her find von Tigron. He agrees, but has his secretary better organize the information they have on hand.

When she does, she discovers compelling information that von Tigron is every bit the Nazi financier that Racy has been alleging. Meanwhile, von Tigron suddenly turns up at Jones' apartment, and tells his wife to be ready to leave for Mexico within the hour. When the couple arrives at the airport, Cairo meets her husband's apparent girlfriend, Marina, who promptly knocks out Cairo with a candlestick. Marina then pretends to be Cairo, and invites Racy to meet up with her. He obliges and is knocked out as well.

When they awake, Cairo and Steve discover that von Tigron and Marina have already left for Mexico. However, in their haste, the Nazi duo have left behind a clue: a Mexican statue Cairo imagines most likely came from the town of Tabasco.

Playing this hunch, the two Americans fly down to Tabasco, where they discover the full truth about von Tigron. He has been using Jones' American citizenship to funnel his wealth to vast caves under Tabasco. He plans to finance a Fourth Reich. Steve alerts the Mexican authorities, whereupon von Tigron quickly ditches Marina and heads for the hills.

Cairo follows, chasing her husband over very rough terrain. He slips into a cave. When Cairo enters, she discovers that the husband she once believed was so brave for standing up to the Nazis has hung himself to avoid capture and trial.

Cairo and Steve fly back to America, with Steve promising Cairo a mandatory vacation on the beaches of Miami.
