Receptionist Gertrude Reece has written a script that sounds vaguely familiar to the audience...could she have been the original author?
Wanting the critique of the only writer she knows, Gertie takes her script to Betty and in the process carries the viewer on a trip to the wind-swept desert of Rabat in French North Africa. Enter the colorful cast of characters to Scot's Cafe Mirage, where the freedom fighters of the Allies and the Nazi's of the Axis mingle, and conspire to find their way out of the country.
The rumor starts to spread like wildfire, Scot has in his possession two "letters of transmit" that will let the bearer out of the country safely. Who will use those two letters? Will it be the lounge singer Lily and Major Peugeot? Will it be Franz Eldridge and Martine Hilare? If Gertie gets the ending she wants, one letter will go to Roberta, but will the other go to charming rogue Scot Sherwood or resistance leader Victor Comstock? All you'll know is that she picks the guy with eight letters in his last name.moreless
