Storyline

Joe Martin, a quiet American, lives a quiet life in the South of France renting boats to tourists. He is happily married to Fabienne and has a twelve-year-old daughter named Michèle. But the quiet man has a past: ten years before, Joe (then Moran) had escaped with four other convicts, among whom the sadistic ex-mercenary Katanga. Seeing the latter brutally kill an M. P., Joe had abandoned his accomplices and left with the car. One night, Captain Ross, Katanga, Whitey and Fausto re-appear.. Written by Guy Bellinger

Goofs

When Fabienne takes ice cubicles out of fridge by one hand and holds the ice "vase" in another we can clearly see that ice amount isn't enough to feel even the half of the "vase". However in the next frame after dropping ice in the sink she walks out of the kitchen with the "vase" overfilled with ice cubicles. See more »

Quotes

Fabienne Martin: Killing him wouldn't be murder; it would be like cleaning a cesspool.

If it wasn't for James Mason and Charles Bronson, well....
10 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Terrance Young's 'Cold Sweat' is a movie I feel that he (Mr. Young) was not completely satisfied with. This movie's greatness would not have a chance had it excluded Mason and Bronson, these two great actors really held up the reins for this movie. Granted it can be complicated in parts because of the amount of scenes shot sporadically (I feel the same way about Rider on the Rain but nonetheless it is a great film as well) but regardless this movie is done very well. Jill Ireland makes a great appearance as a 'hippie' if I can use that term loosely, she was a very beautiful woman I might add too, boy did Charles Bronson have taste in women! But like I said this movie wouldn't have two feet to stand on if it hadn't had the great James Mason and you guessed it...the legendary Charles Bronson. More suspense than Thriller so don't let the genre tag fool you. Nine out of Ten stars...a great movie.
