Mozambique is a 1964 British drama film directed by Robert Lynn from a screenplay by Peter Yeldham, starring Steve Cochran in his final film role, Hildegard Knef, Paul Hubschmid and Vivi Bach.[1][2]


An American pilot assists the Portuguese colonial police who are battling a gang of criminals involved in drug smuggling from Lisbon via Mozambique to Zanzibar.



During the making of the film, Cochran was arrested for committing adultery with the wife of a jockey while in Durban, South Africa.[3]


The New York Times called it "a sleazy little melodrama."[4]
