Morocco to be accurate
20 June 2004 | by (Derby, UK) – See all my reviews

The opening ruse to keep Drummond & Co. from finding Adventure and to find Marriage wears thin after 10 minutes or so, but this potboiler soon picks up speed - the plane taking them all to Morocco was slower.

J. Carroll Naish as the baddie kidnaps the goodie from Scotland Yard, H. B. Warner for his state secrets, flies him out of the country with Drummond in pursuit. I won't give the game away as to whether he, Algy, Tenney and Phyllis succeed in releasing Warner, properly chastise the baddies (including the cub Anthony Quinn) and fly back home into a happy ending - you'll have to bite your nails and watch it!

At times utterly predictable, even with a rather savage lion in some shots - what did they have to do to make it so mad - but as usual a very watchable entry in this series.
