An American geologist accidentally discovers oil in Turkish mountains. An assassin is sent by someone to eliminate him because of that. He boards a passenger boat to try to escape. However, one of the passengers is the assassin.
I saw the Lee Remick remake when it first came out, and was mind-blown by it. When I saw the Bette Davis version, I was disappointed that it lacked so much of the texture provided by the re-make. The oppressive climate, the contemptuous attitude toward the natives, the cultural isolation of the profiteers, and the stunning confrontation scene involving the transfer of the letter were all more palpable than in the earlier film, making for a much richer and more complex realization. It's not easy to find this one, but there are ways, and you won't be disappointed.
