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 »

Visitors Will Leave the Train Before Departing
22 July 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This last gasp effort to resurrect Jon Hall's career has him as an American diplomat in India caught up in the usual web of intrigue and overwrought screen music. The script itself is a bit of a hodge podge of spy movies, ranging from KIM to SABOTEUR, filled with hearty Irish spies, Indians who wear turbans and so forth: very primitive visual clues, because this movie was not going to play the big houses in major cities.

Director Fred Sears can't really do that much with the entire proceedings. DP Henry Freulich takes a shot at doing something by shooting the exterior scenes to obtain a documentary movie look, but the result is frequently blurry, rather than immediate. All in all, a waste of everyone's time.
