A Bit Too Superficial
This film takes place in Tangier in which smugglers operating in the Mediterranean have adopted as their base. To that effect, certain European countries and America have banded together to form a type of police agency to thwart these efforts with their main objective being to discover the identity of the leader for this crime syndicate. Unfortunately, after a rash of killings which has left 20 of their best undercover operatives dead they fear that they are no closer to solving this question than they were before they started. So while discussing their options at a meeting the American representative "Richard Farrell" (Hugh McDermott) proposes using a former O.S.S. agent who might be able to gain substantial information based on the fact that she is a female. And in order to protect her safety he reveals that only he will know her identity. The problem is that upon her arrival in Tangier he is killed immediately after their first meeting. So this leaves her in a hostile environment with no contacts and most importantly-nobody to trust. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say the main problem I had with this film was that neither Maureen O'Hara (as "Joanna Dana") or Macdonald Carey ("Van Logan") seemed believable in their roles. Likewise, the plot was a bit too superficial as well. In any case, while this wasn't a terribly bad movie, I just couldn't get that interested in it and for that reason I have rated it accordingly. Slightly below average.
