Trivia

When asked about this movie Burt Reynolds replied "It looked every inch of its $70,000 budget. The heavy was played by the hotel bell hop, because he had a deep voice. The prop man series up once and used live ammo. I fought a cobra that hadn't been milked of its poison. And near the end I did a fight scene in a river that was contaminated with pollutants. Perhaps it wouldn't have mattered even if I'd had a spleen to purify my blood. As it was, the toxins got in to my system and went to town." See more »

A Curiosity
24 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I had never heard of this film until I watched it recently. A CIA agent played by a young Burt Reynolds is sent to Vietnam (although it was filmed elsewhere) to try to abort an assassination plot against the US ambassador. The film which was made in black and white does have an amateurish feel about it, although Burt, who is not a great actor, does okay. When the film started I didn't think that I would be able to watch it all, however, I did and quite enjoyed it. There is a long chase sequence with Burt doing a lot of running which I thought decent. Although it's not a great film, do if you get the chance try to watch it - if only for curiosity value.

I noticed on the final credits that the mens' hair stylist was Jay Sebring who was sadly one of the Sharon Tate murder victims.
