Storyline

American gambler Nick Cain arrives at the Mediterranean town of San Paola, and befriends an orphan Italian shoe-shine boy named Toni. He is puzzled by the reception and welcome he receives from the management of the casino until he finds he has been framed on a charge of murdering a U.S. Treasury Agent. He escapes with Kay Wonderly and they flee to a deserted village where he leaves Kay to hide out. Nick gets aid from a mysterious character named Massine, whom he suspects of trying to collect the reward offered on his capture. Nick discovers that the men responsible for the agent's death are members of an international counterfeiting ring, using the casino to pass the bogus money.

Another book to movie conversion gone astray.
7 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

James Hadley Chase,among other writers, was well renowned for his ability to capture the readers attention from the beginning to end in all of his crime-thriller novels. That is where the difficulty sets in, can the director and crew capture the same in the movie? The story starts off with the arrival of an American gambler (Nick-George Raft) at a Mediterranean town of San Paola. Soon he gets acquainted with Kay (Coleen Gray) and finds himself framed for a murder, forcing him to go on the run with her. So far so good yet this is the turning point of the movie. Instead of going the edge of your seat 'why and who?' it turned into mediocrity. Overall, had the potential to be a great movie and could have rivaled movies like The Fugitive (1993) had a bit more suspense/tension been pumped into the screenplay and other movie making aspects.
