Dictatorship versus the right of man to freedom is the theme, and the script [from a story by George Tabori] and direction by Richard Brooks lets it get up on the soapbox too frequently.

Footage kicks off with Cary Grant, a brain surgeon, and his wife (Paula Raymond) vacationing in a revolution-ridden Latin country. The doctor and his wife are kidnapped by the presidente’s troops and taken to the besieged capital. There Grant finds the dictator-president suffering from a brain tumor and he is ordered to operate.

Meantime, revolutionaries, led by Gilbert Roland, exert pressure to have the president (Jose Ferrer) die under the knife.

Roland is very good. So is Ramon Novarro, the dictator’s colonel.
