Jon Hall, usually to be found hanging out in Pago Pago or sailing to Tahiti, washes up in India for this B-movie, produced with every expense spared by Columbia. Hall plays an American diplomat whose friend (Douglas Kennedy) turns out to be a member of an insurrectionist group who plant bombs on trains. When the friend is bumped off, Hall becomes both a murder suspect and a target for the terrorists. Shots of India are sort of glued into the picture, as is the sense that the former British colony, liberated by the assassinated Gandhi, is in dire need of help from America to stop it slipping into anarchy.
