Quotes

Emil Dietrich: A half million in heroin... 28 kilos. How would you manage to get it across the border?
Sol Madrid: That's my problem. You're perfectly welcome to come along and watch me do it, if you're willing to risk 20 years in an American or a Mexican prison.
Emil Dietrich: No one is *that* curious. But I am interested: how would you manage it?
Sol Madrid: I'm sorry: my method, my neck, my money.
Emil Dietrich: And my heroin.
Sol Madrid: And *your* profit.

Would have made a good action/adventure series
18 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

David McCallum (Sol Madrid) filmed this movie in Mexico during the summer hiatus of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. in 1967 probably to capitalize on his great popularity in the TV series. From information here, it appears that the movie was not released until after The Man from U.N.C.L.E. was canceled in Jan. '68. I recently saw this film for the first time and enjoyed it very much. Great cast of actors who must have been under contract to MGM at the time, great scenery, good story, tight plot and good pacing. I really feel that MGM made a mistake in not making this into an action/adventure series of movies starring McCallum. Although tame by today's standards, maybe the film was considered too "adult" to be marketed to McCallum's teen fans or maybe it had to do with the timing of its release. Whatever the reason, I think MGM missed out and I would have really enjoyed more "Sol Madrid, Interpol cop" movies.
