When Rip burgles the Police Station, he is disturbed by an officer, whom he forces into a back room. However, the fact that the officer has seen him doesn't seem to cause any problems for Rip at the hands of his friend the Commandant, who would surely have been informed. See more »
The cosmopolitan cast caught my eye and while some of them went on to bigger things several were wasted. Despite third billing, Dennis Price didn't have too much to do, and Anthony Newley in his two appearances was annoying. It was good to Eugene Deckers in a bigger role than usual and James Hayter playing against type as a sleazy club owner.
It took a while for the plot to get going, not helped by the singing and dancing in the club early on. But the film did turn into a reasonable who-done-it, set in exotic locations.
Philip Carey's bad limp miraculously disappeared halfway through the film, and I could not help laughing when he asked Newley if he could fix the plane that had just been damaged in a crash landing.
