Interpol known in the USA as Pickup Alley is a 1957 British Warwick Films crime film shot in CinemaScope starring Victor Mature, Anita Ekberg, Trevor Howard, Bonar Colleano and Sid James. It concerns an Interpol effort to stamp out a major drug-smuggling cartel in numerous countries around the world. Victor Mature plays a US narcotics officer, with Trevor Howard as a drug baron. One reviewer described the film as a "feeble thriller", although it praised the performance of Howard. In the United States it was released as a double feature with The Brothers Rico.
