Synopsis: Adventurer James Brennan returns to Istanbul five years after being ejected under suspicion of diamond smuggling. In flashback, he recalls his last days there, his torrid love affair with Stephanie Bauer, the efforts of shady characters to obtain a strange ornament he received from a friend, and Stephanie's disappearance during a fire. Now that Brennan is back, Stephanie (or her double) reappears, and there's still the question of where the supposedly smuggled diamonds are...

The truth comes from the heart

not the tongue.

I like that.

Did you keep make it up?

Of course.

Know what we used to say in Munich...

when we feel the way I do now?

Tell me.

I love you.

When I fall in love

it will be forever.

Or I'll never.

Falling in love with me.

In a restless world like this

love ends before starting

many moonlight kisses.

They look cool

in the warmth of the sun.

When I give my heart

it will be completely.

Or I'll never give.

My Heart.

And the moment I can fell that

you feel that way too

is when I fall in love.

With you.

And the moment I can fell that

you feel that way too

is when I fall in love.

With you.


You old spell-binder.

If I could sing like that, man,

I wouldn't do anything else.

Come on. Sit down. Have a drink.

No Thank you. Like the cop

says "not when I'm on duty."

That's a good boy.

How is going with you, Miss Bauer?

Thank you. Danny.

What a lovely song.

You've never sang it

more beautifully.

You should know. You've heard it

every night for a solid week.

But today was special.

Let's say the way you

heard it so special.

Get him. One month in Turkey and he's

already giving with the proverbs.

What's with you?

Flying dynamite to the island...

Or fertilizer to Italy?

I'll fly anything, anytime.

You know me.

However, I am temporarily retired.

And I feel temporarily


No, Danny, please.

Please, nothing.

I can't afford you two.

- What?

- Translation please.

Every time I come over here and

look into her love-laden eyes...

I start moping about

my girlfriend in New York.

Do you know how much it cost

to call New York from Turkey?

I got to go up with the fellows who

make the music. I'll see you later.

- Nice guy. First class.

- Mm-hmm.

It's my ship, eh?

Getting ready to sail.
