The Fight Against the Odds


Young Suzy Parker champion all-round athlete, is kidnapped and taken to the island of Calabay, in the Indian Ocean. There she finds that Professor Gilbraith, a millionaire scientist, has produced a group of androids—robots in human form—which he calls the Odds. With them he hopes to prove he can beat the best of the world’s girl athletes, all of whom have also been taken to the island. Then the Professor brings his Odds and the girl athletes to Wembley Stadium, where the great contest begins. Suzy, knowing the others will have to give of their very best to win, has needled them by pretending to be terribly big-headed. This makes the girls vow to beat her, and Suzy knows that if she can force them to excel themselves in doing so, they will beat the Odds as well.
