Richard Thorpe (1959)

U Certificate


Our Score
Workhorse director Richard Thorpe had just completed some uncredited second unit work on MGM's epic Ben-Hur when he was sent by the studio to Britain and Holland to direct this bland B-movie. Based on a Victor Canning caper, this story of a horde of Nazi diamonds lost since the war stars Robert Taylor, also slumming as the heroic ship's skipper who rumbles the plot. Everyone apart from Taylor speaks in the thickest of European accents, while the cast includes that legendary actor/manager, Donald Wolfit.


An American sailor embarks on a perilous expedition to find buried Nazi loot stolen in Holland during the Second World War. Adventure, starring Robert Taylor, Nicole Maurey, Donald Wolfit and Linda Christian.
