Quotes

Murphy: Every now and again we get some little junkie in here who's so far down the line he's makin' half a buck profit on a twenty dollar shot. He doesn't even know what year it is - never mind who's hiring him. It doesn't seem to add up, does it?

1957 B Film
16 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

This was an interesting film which starred Victor Mature, (Charles Sturgis) who was a US Narcotics Agent working with Interpol in order to catch a large dope smuggling operation. Gina Broger, (Anita Ekberg) played a young gal who was working with a big shot dope king, Frank McNally, (Trevor Howard) and was only working with him because he kept her against her will and would not let her go. There is plenty of travel into Lisbon, Greece and New York and it seemed at times that Charles Sturgis was running around in circles. Trevor Howard gave a great supporting role along with Anita Ekberg, but this film was definitely a low budget film and because this was a 1957 film, the gals all wore skirts down to their ankles.
