The helicopter pursuing the car in the climactic chase is shown moving at a high speed, but in close-ups of the deputy and pilot in the copter, the clouds behind are stationary and there's no sign of movement at all. See more »

Great location photography, intriguing story involving bat guano (like Dr. Strangelove), cheesy script charmingly delivered by Cornel Wilde. A rare appearance by the gorgeous Victoria Shaw, who would have made a great Hitchcock heroine but made only a few films, and died at 53. Her red hair is perfectly matched to her colorful outfits. (Normally I never make a notice of costumes but she just looked incredible.) This is a very entertaining flick with plenty of 50's camp and an exciting finale.
