Storyline

After a boat is discovered with two bodies on it, the story of Jeffrey and Sarah, a brother and sister living in Greece, unfolds. Sarah has just become engaged to nice guy Nikos. Erratic playboy Jeffrey owes a debt to Angelo, a mobster who borrowed money from the syndicate to loan Jeff, but if Jeff is disinherited in his late father's newest will, he won't be able to pay Angelo and Angelo won't be able to pay back the syndicate. Suddenly, people who had contact with the latest will are dying, but just who is really responsible? The wily local police inspector has his suspicions. Written by Anonymous

Attack of the over actors!
21 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I got this as part of a box set and ignored it for years. Desperate to tidy up the unwatched films in my collection prior to Christmas, I threw this one on and watched it in a flu haze. George Hamilton sure is annoying, isn't he? This film is part crime caper, a quasi-giallo for a while, then a tragedy. I must have very low standards because I didn't find this one too slow at all, but the over-acting of George Hamilton really scuppers the film. His character is so absolutely smug and irritating it nearly derails the film. On the other hand, Cameron Mitchell, who is also way over the top here, manages to entertain as a cackling old gangster.

What you have here is a bunch of people you don't care about after an amended will. A mysterious person is killing off folk involved, but it ain't that hard to figure out who it is. Medusa was worth one watch, but throughout I wanted to reach into the screen and strangle George Hamilton, who constantly acts like a moron who's been put in front of the camera for the first time.

You can get this film free through public domain - that should ease the pain a little.
