This is a detective programmer involving a Narcotics division located in Egypt. Col. Youssef Bey (Eric Portman) and Lieutenant Mourad (Laurence Harvey) are trying hard to bring down an illegal drug-smuggling ring lead by the Pavlis Brothers. This film champions the police and its methods and looks very harshly at the illegal drug trade. There's some neat twists and surprises here in terms of plot. Portman, Harvey and Harold Lang stand out in their roles. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie.
