High stakes battle of wits and morals between gentlemen crooks, set in beautiful Portugal. A smuggler is hired to kidnap the rich husband of an American woman who’s just arrived in Lisbon, Portugal.
Opening scene-What a psychopath! He baits little birds, strikes them with a tennis racket and feeds a bird to his cat.
Correct but nothing more. Beautifuls views on Lisbon though.
tedious at first, but it picks up ….be patient ,…pretty good flick.
En español,por favor.
Claude Rains impeccable baddie in this.
OMG! I couldn't watch this movie after the opening scene! Creepy! That is sick humor!
Slickly filmed by little Republic in Naturama and glorious Tru Color. However, that script!!
My goodness they really know the art of film making back then, oh’ how fall we have fallen!
03:25…cough, choke, and Je**s, H. Chr**t…this ought to be X-rated.
A real thriller with a touch of drollery!
Snooze fest. Pretty to look at though not much of a story.
Bonita pelicula…tres buenos actores,sobre todo Claude Rains…
What a twist.
Overall, a competent and entertaining flick. Direction is mundane, and dialogue passable. Good acting elevated the movie, especially Claude Raines.
Thanks so much for posiijng this. I saw this in the theater in 1956 and was hoping it wouls show up on You Tube. It looks the way it did then, probably the best example of Trucolor. I'm surprised at the negative comments. How could anybody not like this? You get to see some of Lisbon. you get two gorgeous women, costumed by the underrated Adele Palmer, two villains, a sardonic criminal mastermind and a creepy henchman a la James Bond and subsidiary delights like that blue 1955 Chrysler with wire wheels and Claude Rains' villa with a fireplace shared by two rooms. The dialogue is clever and even the supporting parts a well cast. This was Republic's last attempt at an "A" picture. The company hung on for another year or so but only made cheap, 70 minute "B"pictures in black-and-white.
The bird-killer guy looks like George Soros. Ick.
Very nice movie!! thanks for given us the opportunity to see it!! keep on going!!!
Thank you. It's a great and beautiful movie. I enjoy it very much.
Anyone relishing in 2019……….
Folks, just because a film has been around 50 + years doesn't mean that you should tell the good parts.
Opening scene was repugnant.
Yet another film by Republic Pictures– one of the many propaganda arms of the U.S. State Dept. As always, a thin story about how crime doesn't pay and how we citizens are to behave. Then glossed up with good production and name actors.
pretty funny. in the movie, shot in wonderful sun washed color, blue skies, pastel buildings, big American cars, Ray Milland is a smuggler with a fast ww2 converted boat who meets Claude, a rich not so nice man. he sees a beautiful woman lying on her back sunning by his pool. she's covered only by a very large straw hat. Ray asks if it was for sale. she glances at him and curls her upper lip in a sneer saying in a low voice……"Go away….." i now remember watching this movie on tv in El Paso in the early 60's. my father got a big kick out of the way she said it.
beautiful and very talented Yvonne Furneaux
whose still kicking at 90.
Shoot I didn’t think anyone else fed their cats my way…
