The life of a famous artist is threatened on what would be otherwise an idyllic Mediterranean island.

Several guest stars were in various John Wayne movies. Capucine and Stewart Granger were in North to Alaska (1960), Judy Geeson was in Brannigan (1975) and Cesar Romero was in Donovan's Reef (1963).

Victim: Diego Santana

Killer: John Landry

Motive: His gallery was failing and he needed money, knowing Diego's paintings would sell for more if he were dead.

Setting: Unnamed island in the Mediterranean


When Jessica runs into the water to retrieve the package with the Inspector, her clothes are visibly wet up to her waist when they should be dry.

When the helicopter lands and takes off, it would have taken several minutes for the blades to stop and start rotating; the edits make it appear that the blades stop and then restart almost instantaneously. (at appr 12 mins)

When Sir John tells Jessica about a sighting of a suspect, he mentions it was April at the Epsom derby meeting. The Epsom Derby is traditionally early June and never in April.

Inspector Kyle pointed out the chisel marks on the pedestal, then a minute later said that he had never been on the balcony before.
