The setting of this film is somewhat mysterious. It appears to be England, but the radio has American voices instead of British ones; both the doctor and the barmaid have very English accents, but middle-European names; the police wear uniforms suggestive of eastern Europe (and carry revolvers in a holster); a politician is described as "Secretary of the Interior", a post which does not exist in the British government; there is a reference to "the President", rather than the Prime Minister; and the inn where much of the action takes place seems halfway between an English pub and an Austrian gasthaus.
