James Mason goes to Turkey and foils a revolution
8 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

I acquired this movie when I bought a DVD with eight or nine old mystery films. I figured, what the heck, right, nine old movies I'd never heard of for $6.00. How bad could it be.

And in fact, as something of a movie buff I appreciated these old films. This one was by far the best. Don't expect great acting or a scintillating plot. But James Mason and his supporting cast do not disappoint in delivering a bit of a swashbuckling type performance with a few twists and turns that are for the most part predictable but enjoyable nonetheless. I think the film maker intended Mason to look a bit like Errol Flynn. It's also interesting to see how in 1936 they presented Turkey, where most of the movie takes place.

It's a good Saturday afternoon watch.
