An expatriate American living in Madrid, former Air Force pilot Lloyd Tredman (Robert Taylor) is haunted by his memories of the Korean War and refuses to fly. So when he loses his last dollar on a horserace fixed by a smuggler, he forces himself to accept a $25,000 offer to transport a box of contraband currency from Egypt to Spain. But as Tredman makes the return flight home, he discovers his cargo also includes heroin as he races across the Mediterranean with Interpol hot on his trail. Costarring Academy Award winner* Dorothy Malone and Jack Lord (Hawaii Five-O), Tip on a Dead Jockey was adapted by Charles Lederer (Kiss of Death) from a short story by best-selling novelist Irwin Shaw. Originally intended for Orson Welles, it was directed instead by Richard Thorpe, the sixth of eight films he would make with Robert Taylor, which include the swashbuckling classics Ivanhoe (1952) and Knights of the Round Table (1953).

An interesting movie that Turner needs to put out on DVD...
A late-in-his-career movie for a classic actor, Robert Taylor is just the man for this role-he wants to make some money but finds out it is "bad" money, and how will he fix the situation?....Dorothy Malone is, well, a 50's actress that was put into a lot of movies in the decade-this is one of them........overall, this is a "fly the plane in and out of fields late at night" movie, and it does it's job well.....(and Mr. Taylor's side kick was in two Bogart movies, Casablanca and To Have and Have Not, so he has good credentials). A Recommended movie.
