I saw this film maybe 25/30 years ago on T.V. and thought it was a great film. I knew who Rod Taylor was from The Time Machine and The Birds, and thought the dark haired young man working with him was particularly handsome - I didn't even know it was Pete Duel! From what I remember of the film, it was very exciting and built up to a very emotional climax.
What a shame Pete Duel's films have faded out of circulation while other films that were not half as good are given air time on T.V. and can be purchased relatively easily.
I love Rod Taylor's films and this one should be proudly displayed with the rest of his excellent work.
I've never understood why they have not shown this film on T.V. since. I keep hoping TCM or Sky Classics will dig a copy out of the vault and broadcast it (but it hasn't happened yet) - I live in hope. Failing that, I would love to buy this film (but can't find it - grrr!). If anyone out there has any pull with the studios, please, please, please, release this film on DVD (and don't forget us who don't live in the US, who would love to see this film too)!!! Just release it for one year - and in different regions - and tell us when it's out - that will be enough time. Pleeeeaaaase????
