Geologist John Payne gets involved with a attempt to get Luana Patten to tell the bad guys where the papers are.

MacGuffin aside, this cheaply made and produced movie looks like it was made to fill up a slot in the release schedule. While everyone does their best, it's mostly an excuse to film some pretty landscape to stock music.

John Payne was a decent, hard-working actor, always on the lookout to do something interesting with his career -- he was the first person to option a James Bond property -- but I've never seen him in a performance which I don't think any of a dozen other actors could have played just as well. Perhaps he should have gone into production. Had this movie been more of a success -- he was credited as director for this, although long-time Western director Oliver Drake did at least some of the work -- he might have headed off in that direction. Who knows?
