In a vein similar to the James Bond movies, British Agent Philip Calvert (Sir Anthony Hopkins) is on a mission to determine the whereabouts of a ship that disappeared near the coast of Scotland.
Elliott Kastner offered Orson Welles the role of Sir Anthony Skouras. The deal was forty thousand dollars for one week's work, with an extra five thousand dollars for living expenses.
I have everybody breathing down my neck: the Admiralty, the Government, the Americans... and the insurance assessors. Grubby little men with gabardine raincoats and dandruff.
Philip Calvert: Well I don't have dandruff, Sir, if it's any consolation.
Uncle Arthur: Yes, I don't think...
Near the end of the film, in the castle, Calvert shoots a man with a crossbow. When he walks away his hands are empty. When he walks into the next room he has a carbine with him.
