In their adaptation of Lucille Fletcher’s novel, scripters have approached their task with sights set on combining romantic comedy with tome’s adventurous elements. Director Philip Dunne follows through with this tenor in his visual exposition.

Hudson plays part of a famed NY psychologist treating a mentally-disturbed scientist sought by an international ring, who becomes involved in a plot to kidnap scientist from a top-secret hideout. Film takes its title from his being blindfolded whenever he is to visit his patient, held for self-protection by the government in a secluded spot in the swamp country of the South, where doctor is flown every night from NY.

Hudson offers one of his customary light portrayals, sometimes on the cloyingly coy side, and is in for more physical action than usual. Claudia Cardinale, as the chorus-girl sister of the scientist, displays plenty of appeal. Jack Warden, as an American general in charge of protecting the scientist and who hires Hudson to bring him out of his despondency, knows his way through a line and Guy Stockwell heads the ring.
