She used to lay the not-so-golden eggs
23 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

"The file of the golden goose" is entertaining stuff,if you are not asking too much.There are counterfeiters in those trouble times and their ambitions know no bounds ,they are spreading all over Europe ,including the United Kingdom,which is a shame.Fortunately ,Yul Brynner is at hand ,and with his colleague, he infiltrates the gang,pretending he is a specialist too.He meets Peter Van Eyck who is very fond of Turkish baths but ,against all expectations,is not the big boss.

Best scene: Brynner's colleague,meeting his wife in a shopping arcade and pretending he's never met her.

Nice cruise on the Thames.
