"The internet movie database lists the novel's author as being one Joseph Hilton Smyth. Don't know if that piece of information solves the mystery or not. I've certainly never heard of Smyth. Anyone know of him?"

Joseph Hilton Smyth is also the author of a series of spy novels featuring Bart Gould, President's Agent, published in the mid-1960s. The first book in the series has the name "Joseph Milton" on the cover. The rest (at least the ones I own) have the name "Joseph Hilton" on the cover. I also have a movie novelization (BEYOND MOMBASSA) by Joseph Hilton, who's supposedly the same guy.
