Africa, 1942 (during World War II, so to speak): Winston Churchill (John Evans) has to be shipped right through the continent to Casablanca, but somehow the Axis forces have learned of this and of course will stop at nothing to assassinate him ... so the Allied generals decide to send him through Africa via train (!), despite the fact that all of the train's route is still a battlefield.

Major Valmore (Jean Sorel) is to supervise the operation from Allied HQ, agents Franchetti (Francesco Cooper) and Lorna (Jinny Steffan) work as undercover spies on Churchill's train, and Cooper (Jason Connery) is to do some on-the-ground-intelligence work ... but he soon finds out that Valmore is a traitor - but is held at headquarters on murder charges produced by Valmore.

Meanwhile, top German spy Otto von Tiblis (Manfred Lehmann) has made his way onto Churchill's train and is trying to sabotage it every which way he can, and German paratroopers attack the train. It's only when all seems lost that Cooper is cleared of the murder charges and Valmore is arrested ... but Cooper manages to catch up with the train anyways, where he fights off the paratroopers. But by then, von Tiblis has taken control of the engine and wants to pilot the train right into another German ambush - but Cooper manages to uncouple the waggons from the engine just in time and only von Tiblis falls prey to his own sabotage.

In the end, the Allied army finally arrives to clear up the mess.

And Churchill ?

He took the plane after all (clever choice), the train was only a decoy carrying his double.

Donald Pleasence and Glenn Ford are rather wasted as Allied officers who sit around in headquarters and get rather little to do safe from some discussing.


The events depicted in this film are entirely fictional, have pretty much nothing to do with actual history - which makes the film kind of endearing - in my view at least. The film as such though is rather lame, an underbudgeted period piece full of tired actionscenes and overused plottwists - and Jason son of Sean Connery and Francesco son of Anthony Quinn lack charisma to really carry the film.
