[Speaking to Marica]
When a man is a killer, arsonist, a cheat and a coward, it's hardly surprising if he turns out to be a liar as well.

Finally, someone read the book BEFORE making the movie!
Alistair MacLean has always been one of my favorite authors, dating back to my high-school days in the mid-'60s. He has written many outstanding books, and many films have been made from them. Too many times, however, the title is the only thing that remains the same.
Not in this case, however. Either MacLean himself was involved with this film, or the director actually read the book first before starting, as this film is faithful to the book. A rarity indeed.
