Trivia

This film is inspired by events that took place at the end of World War Two when the Nazis hid much of the gold they had looted during the war. The gold came from many sources including confiscated gold reserves of occupied countries and gold that came from victims of concentration camps. In 1945 most of the gold bullion was either deposited into foreign banks or hidden in salt mines or deep lakes in Germany, Austria and northern Italy. Treasure hunters, including some former Nazis, converged on the Alpine regions of Europe in order to recover this hidden gold. See more »

Implausible plot, waste of veteran actors
1 April 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story is far-fetched, to say the least. Movie director Engles (Newton) picks extra Blair (Price) to keep an eye on people congregating at a ski hut for some sinister purpose. How does Engles know about this gathering? Never explained. What is Blair's sole qualification for this cloak-and-dagger job? He served under Engles in the Second World War and can be trusted. Blair blatantly questions all of the suspects, letting them know they're under his clumsy surveillance. Carla, the sole female in the bunch, promptly falls in love with him, despite her rather checkered past. Engles later stupidly shows up by himself to confront this varied bunch of cutthroats at the isolated hut. Von Kellerman (Lom), an unrepentant Nazi, blurts out the entire story without much prompting (or incentive), saying, "Why not?" The action picks up at the end and everything is sort of resolved in a ridiculous and unbelievable way.

There's plenty of skiing scenes, if you're into that sort of thing. Otherwise, don't waste your time on this tripe.
