    Strange tale where you get to see Peter Lorre play sympathetic drunken loser, and Sydney Greenstreet play way over the top and not his usual smug self satisfied heavy. The old pals from THE MALTESE FALCON meet again and this time their fates are entwined with a nasty superstitious piece of work played by Geraldine Fitzgerald. Also, this time their fates center around a piece of iconic sculpture that might bring them riches. It's kind of a meandering somewhat ponderous story that features a change of character for Peter Lorre and gives him a love interest, as well.

The constant effect of the plane turning and rolling and just being upside down as Martha Raye does comedic mugging and Jimmie Walker plays his saxophone while smoking pot are hilarious. However, the sexist comments made by George "Hey, Honey, that's why…
