Telly Savalas, Robert Culp and James Mason star in Peter Duffell’s thriller caper as three crooks who join together to ‘liberate’ $6m of Nazi gold from East Germany. The only problem is that the one person who knows exactly where the gold is stashed is a convicted war criminal imprisoned in Berlin. The potentially dubious premise of the film is rescued by the interplay of the three leads and by a redemptive, moral conclusion.
