Welles and Del Rio together! as Terror Man vs. Leopard Woman--for possession of a mysterious stranger in the powder-keg Middle East...a man with a military secret worth more than his love and his life!...It's menace melodrama thrilled with mighty mystery and suspense...SEE IT! (taglines)
- Prof. Haller: [Standing at the ship's railing, looking into the distance] Won't you join me, Mr. Graham? I'm just getting some fresh air.
- Howard Graham: Oh...
- Prof. Haller: To see the land from a ship, or to see a ship from the land, I used to like both, but now I dislike both. When a man reaches my age, he grows, I think, to resent subconsciously the movement of everything except the respiratory muscles which keep him alive. Movement is change. And to an old man, change means death.
- Kopeikin: [Seeing Graham off at dockside] Oh, by the way, have you a gun in your luggage?
- Howard Graham: I haven't any luggage!
- Kopeikin: Then, uh, you better take this. I picked it up on the way to see your wife. It is completely loaded. [Pulls out a loaded revolver and hands it to Graham]
- Howard Graham: Well, I don't need this!
- Kopeikin: Put it in your pocket. It will make you feel nicer to have it.
- Howard Graham: I never fired one of these things, you know?
- Kopeikin: [laughs] That's a good one, Howard... You're a ballistics expert, and you never fired a gun!
- Howard Graham: Well, I just never did.
- Kopeikin: It's very simple. You just point it and pull the trigger.
