A quartet of international crooks meet up with an innocent couple and head to africa, presumably to sell vacuum cleaners but actually they are going to buy land supposedly loaded with uranium.
Editor's Note
John Huston and Truman Capote co-wrote the screenplay while working on location. A whimsical parody of The Maltese Falcon and other 1940's detective movies in which Bogart so often starred (and Huston directed).Tells of the exploits of a group of travelers on a steamboat who each hopes to carry off a huge swindle in the uranium fields of Northern Africa. While not a commercial success upon its release, the film has come to define the genre of spy movie spoofs.
