This low renter from Universal
Studios plays out like a small time version of "Casablanca." Set in Tangier
just after the war it includes Nazis on the run, stolen diamonds, knives to the
back, gun-play and of course murder.
The cast is made up of Robert
Paige as a down to his last nickel newspaperman. Sabu plays one of the local
guides for hire that are always present in these films. Preston Foster plays
the local Police Colonel. Maria Montez, Kent Taylor and Louise Allbritton are a
trio of dancers at the local American bar while J Edward Bromberg and Reginald
Denny fill out the necessary shady types.
Paige is just trying to score
a story so he can get back to the States and boy does he ever find one. As he
floats through the bar looking for a soft touch, he sees Denny whom he
recognizes as a wanted Nazi.
