Passport to Treason

American PI investigates sinister goings-on within a peace organization in London.

Enjoyable but typical B-movie with too much happening for its running time. Comes across like an episode of The Saint, with Michael Shayne guest-starring in place of Simon Templar. Given the producer and director, that's hardly surprising. Rod Cameron got his nose broken filming a fight scene with Andrew Faulds, so at least those scenes ring true!

Note: The US version (available on Amazon) is lacking a 6.5 minutes chunk of scenes, comprising O'Kelly talking to Caterina after the funeral, the police talking to Giorgio, Miss Jones discovering a clue, and of the Peace Committee meeting and O'Kelly's first meeting with Dr. Randolph. Also missing are two later scenes of Pietro trying to convince Caterina to help him, and Diane's car "breaking down." Not vital, but these scenes help explain things that make the plot seem more happenstance than it seems in the US edit.
