Kenneth G. Crane,
It's a measure of how dim this film is that the stalwart US import is the brightest thing in it, delivering an undimmed professional and spirited performance. Produced by E J Fancey (responsible for the rather shambolic "Down among the Z Men") a little of it (it only runs to 50 mins) doesn't do the viewer much good. It appears to be something of a Spain/UK co production, is set in Spain and gives the impression that the entire sound is post-dubbed. At random points, chirpy cinema organ music interjects for no apparent reason and entirely unconnected with the mood at the time. The plot is a crime caper involving the kidnap of an engravers daughter to force him to make printing plates for phoney bucks (cue old joke)and a sea-hijack. It has its dramatic and humorous moments but so distracting is the organ music that its sometimes difficult to know which is which. A curiosity - how did it ever come to be made and how did it ever come to be released?
