American doctor Fairbanks is tricked into travelling to an Eastern Bloc nation to operate on their premier. When said premier dies, the doctor is held prisoner to prevent the news from getting out. He escapes, and the chase is on.
Very good suspense film, sadly neglected (no DVD release to date). Good performances from all and a well-maintained sense of danger. Definitely worth seeking out.
Note: the various actors credited as clubmen are not present in the print consulted. Either the scenes were cut, or the copy available has been trimmed.
