Hi Wilf,
Have you looked at imdb?
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059399/
Again, maybe Columbia Pictures / buffs could help?
There is the opportunity to add comments/ask questions.
May take a while to get the reply, though. SS PATNA,
was the name of the ship in the story.
Incidentally, a Conrad buff states it was based on the
SS JEDDAH .. see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.S._Patna
All Best, Raymond
