Special notes Director of photography: Otto Heller
Margaret Hinxman on Heller's camerawork: "The atmosphere helped by strikingly effective black and white photography is authentic, not manufactured: the sleazy South American ports at the beginning and end; the tense, lonely world of the tramp steamer where most of the action takes place." (Picturegoer)
