Goofs

One of the jets at the "North Korean" airbase is an American F-86 fighter; although it has a red star - the North Korean identification mark - on the fuselage, at the top of the tail assembly at the back of the plane can be clearly seen the words, "California Air National Guard". See more »

Woeful war story
22 September 2001 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Here's yet another AIP quickie from the fast working hands of Edward L. Cahn. Someday I hope someone makes a film about him, or at least writes a book, because his prodigious output in 1958 and 1959 has never been outdone. Perhaps I'm not giving William Beaudine the credit he deserves...at any rate, this grade Z Korean war 'thriller' stars Audrey Totter as a Russian nurse in love with handsome John Agar. Ms. Totter was fine in her element---film noir---but as a Soviet double agent she just doesn't make the grade. Add in the California locations (complete with a Woody with a Soviet star painted on its side), the world's least convincing set of South Korean partisans (including what appear to be Polynesian dancing girls), and a preposterous finale involving stolen MiGs, and you have a turkey of Ed Woodian proportions.
