Goofs

At one point the diplomat steals a Beechcraft Model 18 from an alleged Indian airport. All the aircraft on the flightline are American models wearing U.S. N-registrations and the airport is obviously in Southern California due to the mountains and eucalyptus trees visible. The Beech he commandeers is a civilianized ex-USAAF AT-11 Kansan with the former bombardier glazed nose faired over with metal. Once airborne, the Beech shown is a round-nosed C-45 model. When the actor leaves the cockpit to bail out, another sideview of the C-45 shows a pilot still in the pilot's position. See more »

O.K. Film for Some
21 July 2008 | by (Toronto Ontario) – See all my reviews

This is a film that has resurfaced after 40 years of being stored somewhere. Unless one is a devoted film buff one will likely recognize no-one in the film. Even Jon Hall who made a big splash in 1937 in "Hurricane" is not easily recognized in this 1952 film.

It is a story of an American diplomat who uncovers a plot to kill an important Indian prince (when Indian princes mattered!) by blowing up his train. There are a couple of killings for which the diplomat is blamed, thus preventing him from approaching the police for help. There are a few twists and turns but the film is rather standard.

There are a number of incongruities in the film which will be noticed by many viewers - the film was quite obviously done inexpensively and it shows in the script and much of the scenery. It fits with Ronald Reagan's comment: "They didn't want it good. They wanted it Tuesday." Don't make a point of trying to see it, but if it's on and you want to pass 75 minutes it is probably entertaining enough.
