Indiana Jones meets Film Noir as Glenn Ford rummages around in Cuba and Mexico, trying to find legendary Zapotec treasure, evading criminals and the government on its way. Glenn Ford delivers in his classic stoic style, which fits good into this role as a broke anti-hero. The film features a good cast and the odd twist, at least it is not always easy to tell who is on who's side. Unfortunately, it is the love interest where the film truly fails, as Diana Lynn and Glenn Ford have virtually no on-screen chemistry. Diana Lynn does noz have too much screen presence anyway. Sean McGlory adds an ambigious rogue to the parade, which spices up the story and makes it more flexible. The film makes good use of the setting and scenes will frequently take place in ancient ruines and tunnels. A good adventure movie and an unusual genre mix, which works because Ford holds it together through his straight style.
