Roger Corman’s crime film, which bills itself as a version of The Maltese Falcon, stars Vic Morrow as Harry Black, a tough-skinned, hard-living American in trouble. Two dangerous factions want to get their hands on engraving plates stolen from the British Mint, and Harry is caught in the middle. The staged car chases, the seductive woman (Suzanne Pleshette) who wants Harry for her own reasons, Monte Carlo and scenes from Istanbul, the dramatic musical score and all the hallmarks of a low-grade James Bond spy thriller date this drama back to the 1960s.
