Gabor and De Carlo provide much international sex appeal to this tight little B movie about greed and doing whatever you can to get to the top. Sanders plays the smarmy villain, a character he exceeds at beautifully whenever called upon. A very versatile actor, able to play detectives and villains with equal vigor. There are some spots in the film which are a bit ho hum, but overall this is a great B pic. 3.5 stars
Quite unknown to the audience despite the cast. Sanders plays his usual elegant villain. Strong female cast with Yvonne de Carlo and Zsa Zsa Gabor bringing a kind of exotic glamour. Dialogue is witty.
Decent and entertaining, nothing major about it. But it's delightful to succumb to the charm of a well crafted B-movie classic...
