Storyline

On an airliner bound for Hong Kong, Tony Dumont (Rory Calhoun) is attracted to a pretty novelist, Pamela Vincent (Barbara Rush), who returns the attention. The plane is held up by a hi-jacking gang and a shipment of diamonds are stole. Dumont is actually the master-mind of a diamond-smuggling syndicate operating from Macao. Warned by Mama Lin (Soo Yong), that he might lose his sweetheart, Jean Blake (Dolores Donlon), because of his attention to Pamela, Tony is so infatuated with Pamela, that he double-crosses the gang and follows Pamela to San Francisco, taking the diamonds with him. There, she brushes him off. Now hunted by both the police and the syndicate, he returns to Macao. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

22 December 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This high speed B movie of Rory Calhoun trying to get out from under the thumb of the diamond smuggling syndicate moves at too fast a speed to make the viewer care much about the characters. They are all portrayed as stick figures: Calhoun, his adventure-loving friends who get caught up in high-profit rackets in Macao; the leaders of the syndicate who spend their time around a board room; and the woman who loves him, who is little more than a plot device: she is a writer who asks occasional questions which fill in the plot holes.

The dialog is composed of clichés. The music is so overwrought it dins in your ears, and frequent titles appear to let you know where the action is taking place and what is going on. It all doesn't matter, however, as locations, people and plot all flash past at too fast a pace to make much difference to anyone. You're left with the feeling that there are good actors here without enough time to make any impression. The net result is simultaneously paranoid, breathless and uninvolving.
