Movie Quote(s):
  • Steve Colt: When Ward destroyed the fingerprints and got away with Dr. Currie's handbag, he left us with no further clue to the Black Widow Gang. All we know is that the leader is definitely a foreigner, probably an Asiatic, certainly a woman. Prof. Henry Weston: And an ingenuous woman - as deadly as the name implies.
