While on vacation in a Latin American country, an American neurosurgeon and his wife become tangled in a revolutionary uprising against a tyrannical dictator.
Although great pains were used to disguise the name of the country in the film, Dr. Ferguson mentions that President Farrago should go to a neurological hospital (which he mentions is just across the border) in Chile--which narrows the country down to either Argentina, Bolivia or Peru. Other hints include: Peso/Dollar law, the blankets worn on the train, license plates on vehicles.
Doctor, do many people die in an operation like this?
Dr. Eugene Norland Ferguson: Under the best conditions, about 12 percent. These are not the best conditions.
Raoul Farrago: You don't like me, do you?
Dr. Eugene Norland Ferguson: I try to regard my patients impersonally.
Raoul Farrago: Can you?
Dr. Eugene Norland Ferguson: No.
The doctor announces his fee is ten percent of the patient's income, but does not say whether this means monthly, annual or some other period.
Also available in a computer colorized version.
