Storyline

A vacationing British family is on the Arizona border with Mexico when their teenage daughter mistakes a criminal's stolen car for her family's and goes to sleep in the backseat. Not realizing she is there, the criminal drives the car to Mexico, where the girl witnesses a murder. When the parents realize their daughter is missing, they return to the diner in an attempt to locate her, but corrupt police forces on both sides of the border conspire to keep the daughter from her parents. A handful of honest citizens on both sides of the border try to help, but with the daughter knowing the truth about the car theft business, the criminals must keep her from reuniting with her parents. It's always good to see James Anderson, and here he plays a pivotal role in the effort to keep the parents from the daughter. Written by Ronny Bailey

fairly large scale but problems hamper it
25 September 2013 | by (French Polynesia) – See all my reviews

The scope of the story is pretty large and the Mexican village is pretty detailed and filled with some extras and realistic Spanish language. It's got some mood from Psycho DP John Russel too, the best shot being a shadowy close up of the girl in the car when she first realizes her dangerous situation.

The whole story involves a conspiracy which is interesting and credible--a preview of the modern cross-border crime series THE BRIDGE and other real-life stories.

Wilding and Lee are too old to be her parents and neither of them overcome the perfunctory nature of their roles. Also director Crosland does a fairly poor job with the key moments of plot twist and a couple of pretty poorly staged fight scenes--the first of which features a really poor stunt double.

The young leads come off best but they do have to act pretty stupid at one key moment to keep the story going.

Outgoing Hitchcock bit even includes a bit of slop as an off stage director can be heard saying "Action" and you see Hitch quickly get into character, all this mistakenly on screen--for a few frames.

It's fast paced but another weak entry from producer Joan Harrison which is routine of 50's/60's TV on all levels, including story, than anything else.
