| Even The Authorities Are Scared Of The Authorities
The passenger plane that Richard Greene is piloting strays out of the air corridor from Berlin. The plane is forced down by Russians. When local authorities let the plane and passengers continue on their way, Eva Bartok, the stewardess and Greene's fiancee, is held as a German national and sent to Dresden in East Germany. Greene determines to go underground and get her out.

There are some good actors in this Cold War thriller shot entirely in England: not only the leads, but Marius Goring as an old friend of Miss Bartok's who is now working for The Authorities. In all, though, this is a mediocre effort, with its roots deep in cinema, from the days when innocent civilians were trying to escape from Germany during the First World War. Eric Cross' camerawork is competent but undistinguished and it looks like the production was shot for speed and not excellence; a couple of American characters do not bother to maintain their accents.
