Description by OLDIES.com:

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but obtaining that knowledge is even more dangerous for a Civil War spy. Marion Davies portrays the Union agent codenamed Operator 13, whose work behind enemy lines grows more precarious when she violates the first rule of espionage: never fall in love with the enemy.

The fact that Gary Cooper - tall, handsome and striding into career greatness - plays the Confederate officer she falls for certainly helps explain the operative's vulnerability. He and Davies (who three years later left movies for the splendor of the San Simeon estate she shared with William Randolph Hearst) both earned critical plaudits, as did the film's battlefield sequences between the clashing Blue and Gray."

Product Description:

If you can accept blonde, blue-eyed Marion Davies disguising herself in blackface, chances are you'll swallow the rest of OPERATOR 13. Davies plays a Belle Boyd-like actress who agrees to become a Northern spy during the Civil War. She assumes the identity of an octoroon servant and heads into Southern territory. Marion meets dashing Confederate captain Gary Cooper, and instantly falls in love with him. Later, she assumes the disguise of a Southern belle to prevent Cooper from recruiting Southern sympathizers in the north. This time Cooper falls for Davies, which makes it hard for her to carry out her mission. After several more reels of espionage and romantic interludes, including a gently kinky sequence in which Cooper and Davies are handcuffed together, the lovers part company, promising to meet again when the war is over.
