Inside the Lines (Biggers and Ritchie)
The start of World War I: Britain has just gone to war against the Germans: and several Americans are stranded in the little British colony of Gibraltar—desperate to get onto a ship back home. But suspicion is rife: there are spies everywhere: not all are as they seem: and there are rumours of a German plot. Going home is by no means easy.
The novel was adapted from the play of the same name by Earl Derr Biggers. In turn adapted into a black-and-white silent film in 1918 and remade in colour in 1930. (Details of the 1930 film and a link to watch it are at Wikipedia
