Trivia

The all white aircraft flown and crash landed by Anthony Newley in the film was Auster J/1 Autocrat G-AHAP and there is a photograph taken of the aircraft at Elstree available. To hid its original identity and place it in context the G was replaced with an F, making it a French registered aircraft. See more »

Goofs

When Rip is checking the report of his wife's death at the Police Station, it is written in English rather than French which would surely have been the case since the action takes place in Morocco. See more »

When a thriller has two songs in the opening quarter of an hour you know you are going to have a problem.Add to this a very bland leading man and you have a recipe for boredom.Additionally the climax is a real letdown.So the only real plus is the excellent colour cinematography.James Haynes features for once as a villain.
