Storyline

On an airliner bound for Hong Kong, Tony Dumont (Rory Calhoun) is attracted to a pretty novelist, Pamela Vincent (Barbara Rush), who returns the attention. The plane is held up by a hi-jacking gang and a shipment of diamonds are stole. Dumont is actually the master-mind of a diamond-smuggling syndicate operating from Macao. Warned by Mama Lin (Soo Yong), that he might lose his sweetheart, Jean Blake (Dolores Donlon), because of his attention to Pamela, Tony is so infatuated with Pamela, that he double-crosses the gang and follows Pamela to San Francisco, taking the diamonds with him. There, she brushes him off. Now hunted by both the police and the syndicate, he returns to Macao. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

mob guy travels around the world
27 March 2018 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

Exotic for the viewers, as people didn't go very far in those days. Even if the actors never left the studio lot, they thought they were experiencing the travel that the actors may or may not have actually done. Rory Calhoun stars as Tony, the mob guy, running the usual scams. He runs off with the stolen goods, and now everyone is after him. Including his two women, Barbara Rush and Dolores Donlon. Keep an eye out for Werner Klemperer (Colonel Klink! ) he's the fence that sets up the connection. This one is fun, if only for the travel, the near-misses, and bad guys getting away with doing bad things. or are they really getting away with it ? One gets the sense that its all about to crash down on Tony, but so far so good! Some fun, exciting scenes with beautiful sets and backgrounds. Tony puts on a lot of miles in 88 minutes. Plot kind of meanders all over the map, but ah well. Directed by Joseph Newman, twice nominated for oscars. It's pretty good.
