Goofs

In the opening scenes, a man climbs a wide expanse of steps, with a large rubbish bin situated at the commencement of the steps. As he reaches the concrete bollards across the top of the steps he turns to face somebody and is stabbed. In the next shot he is rolling down the steps, but someway from the bollards where he stopped and clatters into the rubbish bin which is no longer at the base of the steps. Whilst the man is rolling over, there is no evidence of his having being stabbed, but when a policeman reaches him, there is a long bladed knife protruding from his chest. See more »

Not a bad way to kill an hour and a half...
11 November 2011 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

A merry yarn and predictably cheesy in all the right places. The fight scenes are particularly wanting and the dialogue is more than inadequate in places, but one is compelled to hang in there to let the plot unravel. The characters are implausible rather than larger-than-life, especially the Arab contingent, but this was 1965 and the swinging sixties seems an acceptable excuse. As usual, for movies of this period and genre, the hero is sadly old enough to be the father of the damsel in distress, leaving one to wonder: where were all the young, virile men before 1970? Perhaps it's also somewhat surprising that, being a British-made film, there is a distinct lack of black actors and extras, especially as this actually was filmed in Mozambique! Overall, it's not the worst way to kill an hour and a half, unless you have something better to do such as walk the dog.
