Fugitive in Trieste was one of a number of films of the era, including the British productionSleeping Car to Trieste (1946) and American Diplomatic Courier (1952) that used Trieste as a backdrop. These films often highlighted its cosmopolitan nature and as a borderline between different powers due to the Trieste question.
