Storyline

Tramp pilot Scott McBride (Sterling Hayden) goes to meet a Mr. Rodriguez who has a mission for him in the South American jungle. Rodriguez turns out to be Cesar (Rodolfo Hoyos), an old enemy of Scotty's, who demands that Scotty fly him and his henchmen, on the lam on a robbery and murder charge, to a waiting ship on the other side of the continent. Scotty can't refuse as his young son is being held hostage on the waiting ship. He also finds out that he is getting involved in theft of $280,000 worth of gold bars. His plane is disabled by police fire and they crash land and have to trek across the country, with Scotty now a wanted criminal along with the rest of the gang.

Decent Time Waster
22 August 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This second feature is neither as good nor as awful as other reviewers might have you believe. Sterling Hayden is blackmailed into taking part in a hold up south of the border and then has to go on the run. It has some good photography and decent direction by old hand Henry Hathaway to keep things moving along. But co-star Rudolfo Hoyos steals every scene he is in and the fact that a lot of his and Hayden's conversations take place in alternating takes makes me think that either the two didn't get along or that Hayden really didn't want to be there -- quite probably the latter.

It's hard to make a movie when the star wants to be several thousand miles away on his boat, but this one frequently works, despite an awful script with idiotic dialogue, mostly due to some lovely photography by cinematographer Alex Phillips, who started off in the US during the silent era and then spent the next thirty years shooting in Mexico for the local industry. But really, if Hayden really had such contempt for his craft -- and he did -- he should have tried working for a living.
