Storyline

Tramp pilot Scott McBride (Sterling Hayden) goes to meet a Mr. Rodriguez who has a mission for him in the South American jungle. Rodriguez turns out to be Cesar (Rodolfo Hoyos), an old enemy of Scotty's, who demands that Scotty fly him and his henchmen, on the lam on a robbery and murder charge, to a waiting ship on the other side of the continent. Scotty can't refuse as his young son is being held hostage on the waiting ship. He also finds out that he is getting involved in theft of $280,000 worth of gold bars. His plane is disabled by police fire and they crash land and have to trek across the country, with Scotty now a wanted criminal along with the rest of the gang.

Sterling Hayden goes slumming.
28 November 2010 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

My assumption is that in 1958 Sterling Hayden was either very hard up for cash or there just weren't that many job offers. Otherwise, why would he have agreed to star in such a cheap Mexican production? Apart from being a tad dull and having a silly romance, the film isn't bad...but it's certainly a step down for Hayden.

Hayden is a widower and pilot who is working somewhere in South or Central America (it's location is pretty vague). He's approached for job but doesn't realize that it's really to spirit a mobster and his gang out of the country with some stolen gold. To ensure his cooperation, they've kidnapped his son and threaten to kill the boy. The entire film consists of Hayden and the gang trying to make their way to the coast after the plane is shot down--avoiding another gang as well as the police. There really isn't any more to it than this--other than a romance that seems to come from no where and develops way too quickly to believable.

While the film is not bad, it clearly isn't all that good and is a bit sluggish. You could do worse, but you could certainly do better. Hayden gives it his usual professional best but there just isn't much life in this film shot in Mexico on a very meager budget.
