TCM says:

Gangster Nick Ferraro, who has been living in Naples since his deportation from the United States, is anxious to return to the States to put his lucrative enterprises in order. To accomplish this, he and his cohorts in the States and Mexico–Corle, Thompson and Martin Krafft–select an unwitting gambler named Dan Milner, whose weight and height match Ferraro’s, to provide Ferraro with a new identity. Corle offers Dan $50,000 to go to Mexico for a year, without revealing who is paying him or why. Broke, Dan accepts the initial $20,000 payment and travels to Nogales, Mexico, to receive further instructions. While waiting for a plane to take him to his final destination, Dan meets Lenore Brent, a beautiful heiress and polished singer.

  1. my favorite of the Mitchum/Russell films,great snappy dialogue,a healthy dose of humor,and two classic scenes…Mitchum ironing his money”Whenever I have nothing to do and I can’t think, I always iron my money””What d’ya do when you’re broke?””When I’m broke, I press my pants” ,and Vincent Price going to the rescue in a leaky boat filled with Mexican Federalistas….directed btw,by Mia Farrow’s father
