Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Flame of Stamboul concerns dirty work at the Suez Canal, orchestrated by a master spy (George Zucco) known only as "The Voice." U.S. intelligence agent Larry Wilson (Richard Denning) is dispatched to Egypt to prevent the theft of top-secret defense papers. Here he is detained by exotic dancer Lynette Garay (Lisa Ferraday), who is the unwitting pawn of The Voice and his henchmen. Director Ray Nazarro, borrowed from Columbia's "B"-western unit, does a competent job with the derring-do at hand. One of the many sinister-looking characters in Flame of Stamboul is played by Norman Lloyd, who later co-starred on TV's St. Elsewhere.
