Ben plays a small time hood who goes to Turkey then to Italy to smuggle opium and drugs to make it to the big time. But he realises the rough and long road as everyone tries to take a cut from his business. Great locations (like Turkey and other places) and funky pop tunes by Oliver Onions does add flavor to this poorly put together film. The main reason to see this is Ben Gazzara who is a very underrated actor and he is great as usual. But the main problem is that he is badly dubbed by someone else. Recommended.
