One of World War II's most incredible true tales -- that of Claire Philips, America's own Mata Hari -- comes to life in this riveting screen saga. In the Philippine jungles, club singer Claire hastily marries a GI, only to see him cut down by attacking Japanese troops. Rescued by underground US guerillas, she's inspired to get revenge in a most unusual manner -- by opening up a ritzy Manila nightclub. The joint's high-ranking enemy patrons know Claire as svelte Madame Tsubaki, while the Yanks code-name her "High Pockets" for stashing enemy intel in her décolletage. After smuggling valuable Axis secrets and supplies, she's discovered -- and sentenced to die at dawn! Ann Dvorak (from the original Scarface) lights up the screen with glamour and sheer guts in this timeless tale of dauntless female heroism."
