A little gem

What a surprise for me !!! I only knew, from Victor mac Laglen's son, his westerns and adventures, warfare, movies from the late sixties and seventies, for instance those inspired from Alistair Mac Lean novels. Commandos features. I did not know that he began so early in the movie industry...

I admit we recently discovered "Man in the Vault", available in the DVD stores.

Well, about "The Abductors", it's really a good, a real good and entertaining B movie telling the story of a bunch of adventurers trying to rob Abraham Lincoln's grave. Nothing less !!!

As far as I know, George Mac Ready had never played with Victor mac Laglen. Perhaps I am wrong. I enjoyed it very much.
