Assignment Redhead (1956) Yank title Million Dollar Manhunt
Two token Yanks this time in the shape of Richard Denning (secret service) and Carole Mathews, playing the part of a German cabaret artist (the accordion - WOW hot stuff!!) so you don't notice her accent and I presume she is the redhead in question, given this is a B&W film............., with Ronald Adam (normally a high ranking policeman) playing the mastermind criminal and Danny Green (The Ladykillers) as a German heavy all chasing $12,000,000 of Nazi forged dollar bills.
It could have been a good film but got bogged down in so much detail and red herrings that you lose interest and not care what happens to any of them. The dockside warehouse scenes I'd seen before, even the ladders they were climbing to the roof (yes, you can see where this is going - again) for the final fight before the villain falls to his death. Aaaaaarrrrrgggghhhhh! Trump.......I mean thump.
I wouldn't bother.
