Goofs

When Sam Carter takes delivery of his forged Spanish passport he runs through the attributes it lists - eye colour blue, hair colour fair, height 5 feet 11 and a half inches and so on. However, Spain adopted the metric system in 1849, so his height would have been given in metres/centimetres. See more »

Robert Stone: Yes, he's been doing our books for fifteen years at least. The quietest, nicest fellow you could meet. He came here about once in two weeks. Carter and I used to look at the stone together. We used to stand here, just looking.

Unfortunate miscasting but still enjoyable
10 January 2019 | by dnhallidaySee all my reviews

Nigel Patrick gives a great performance as usual, ably supported by screen stalwarts such as Sid James Donald Pleasance Gerard Heinz and especially Anthony Newley. Anita Ekberg provides the glamour and there are lots of exotic locations in Europe. However, Jack Palance is woefully miscast as the romantic lead and this film would have been far better if he had swapped roles with Bonar Colleano and played the villainous heavy. Having said that there is still a lot to enjoy as the story is good and there are plenty of entertaining scenes and dialogue. I liked the scenes on the train and particularly those with the precocious little girl. Incidentally, the train seems to start out in Paris as the famous Golden Arrow but ends up being pulled by an ordinary tank engine.
