Passport to Destiny
Passport to Destiny is a 1944 RKO Radio Pictures fantasy war film, starring Elsa Lanchester as an English charwoman who, believing herself invulnerable by being protected by a magic eye amulet, travels to Nazi Germany to personally assassinate Adolf Hitler.
Ella Muggins (Elsa Lanchester) is a Camberwell charwoman who is the widow of a regimental sergeant major. One day during the London Blitz, she relates to her friends a story about a "magic eye" charm that her husband obtained during his Army service in India that protected him from all harm. Whilst cleaning her attic, she goes through her husband's effects and finds the charm that she absent-mindedly puts in the pocket of her skirt.
