Written by John Huston and Truman Capote. The story is about several travelers who meet in port while waiting for a ship to take them to Africa. Three unlikely criminals, "The Committee", are on their way to pull off a uranium swindle. Their hired agent, Dannreuther, is the reluctant but ever capable leading man, married to a beautiful young Italian who dreams of being English. Harry Chelm is English to the point of absurdity. He is every bit the exaggerated epitome of a British aristocrat, except that he lacks the wealth and title to actually be one. His wife, a charming mythomaniac, manages to convince everyone else otherwise. Complications arise when this group is confined to a small port and then to an even smaller ship.
