A diplomatic courier (Tyrone Power) for the State Department is set to receive an important package from a colleague and old friend (James Millican) in Austria but the contact pretends to not recognize him and is later murdered and the package missing. Veteran director Henry Hathaway (TRUE GRIT)is behind the camera for this intriguing espionage cold war thriller. Shot in B&W by Lucien Ballard (THE WILD BUNCH), the film doesn't take full advantage of the colorful Austrian and Italian locations which would have benefited from a Technicolor perspective. It would have been different if the B&W photography contributed a noir-ish post WWII atmosphere like Reed's THE THIRD MAN but it's not that kind of picture. The film profits by having two femme fatales, a globe trotting widow (Patricia Neal) who Power meets on an airplane and a Czech spy (Hildegard Knef) who Power meets on a train. Hathaway keeps the movie whizzing along to its conclusion with very little lagging. The large cast includes Karl Malden, Lee Marvin, Charles Bronson, Stephen McNally, Herbert Berghof, Helene Stanley and Michael Ansara. An enjoyable, if minor, entry into the cold war movie canon.

The Fox DVD via Spain is a nice B&W transfer in its appropriate 1.33 aspect ratio. Spanish subtitles are removable.

worth seeing specially for the 50s look of the places (Paris, Salzburg, Triest) and the orient express scenes. Hidegarde is beautyful and strangely fragile

I LOVED IT!!! Already watched it 3 times. Love the suspense and romance. So excited to have it. Tyrone Power is great, Patricia Neal is her great self, and Hildegarde Neff is great. Love the way she talks.

Probably one of the lesser known Tyrone Power films, this filmed on location Cold War spy thriller has many twists and turns that keep you guessing.

I bought this because I'm a fan of Tyrone Power and like most every film he was in (well, some more than others). I had never seen it before so I took a chance and was happy that I did. On another DVD in the Tyrone Power collection, Patricia Neal is interviews about her role in this film so I was intrigued enough to buy this. He's still pretty darn handsome in this one; only a bit older and less of a callous youth, as with is films from the 1930s.

Remember, as with all of the Fox Cinemas Archives DVDs, there are no extras of any sort - just the movie. All very barebones!

This film held my interest from beinning to end. All of the actors were at the top of their game. It sparked my interest to the point that I am going to purchase the book, Sinister Errand, on which the movie is based.

The cold war was so simple as compared with today's international problems!

I love Tyrone Power. He made this Cold War thriller in the early 1950's and it takes you all over Europe with plenty of twists and turns. Ty really gives his all and you will see many soon to be stars, like Lee Marvin popping up. It is not great, but I liked it.

Good movie but what's not to like about Tyrone Power. He's a great actor and was excellent in everything he did. It's just a
shame that he died too young. I want to see all of his movies that are left and I have quite a few of his.

A good suspense movie with one of my favorite actors, Tyrone Power. Also a very good performance by Patricia Neal.
