Storyline

Movie producer Max Poulton is having an on again, off again affair with Gina Bertini, the temperamental leading lady in his latest movie which is filming in the French Riviera. Gina and Max's current off again status is due to Max vowing to make a go of his marriage to his loving wife, Carol Poulton, with who he has had a sometimes strained relationship.

That's why Max is hesitant to divulge the full nature of his relationship to Gina when she is found murdered.

Goofs

After leaving Max and Carol, and trying to make an escape before the police arrive, Carliss jumps in the car in the left-handed driver's seat. The long shot of the car tearing down the hill then shows it to be a European version of the same car with the driver in a right-handed driver's seat. Various subsequent shots - close, long and from inside have Carliss appearing to be driving from the right seat, left seat and in between the two. See more »

The 45 Year Old Stewart Granger
4 November 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

It's a pity that Granger wasn't teamed up against George Sanders in the same way that he was against James Mason. I think their standoff would have made a good fight sequence in a swashbuckler like 'Moonfleet'.

A good yarn, but disposable after the first watch.
