N.p. Lincoln Productions Inc., 1953. Vintage studio still photograph from the 1953 film.

Filled with a notable cast, the film was released in the midst of the "red scare" of the early 1950s. A group of terrorists planning to blow up the Panama Canal kidnap a nuclear scientist and force him to take part in their plot. However, the saboteurs underestimate the ship's captain, Barton MacLane, who might spoil their plans.

10 x 8 inches. Fine.
