As one of a disparate group of fortune-seekers bound for Africa, hard-up Billy Dannreuther (Humphrey Bogart) faces the swindling machinations of his fellow travellers as they await passage from a picturesque port on Italy’s Amalfi coast. But with scheming aplenty, will this motley crew miss the boat completely?

Jennifer Jones, Gina Lollobrigida and Peter Lorre join Bogart among the star-studded cast. A masterful shaggy dog story that’s part comedy and part thriller, nothing is quite what it seems as director John Huston, ably assisted on the script by none other than Truman Capote, pulls off a wry send-up of film noir, including his own The Maltese Falcon.
