'Gold" is a well-crafted and entertaining film, with the positive taste 'Gold' is like a "who's who"for James Bond-fans lead star Roger Moore, there's a director Peter R. Hunt (e.g. "On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)" ) and editor/second unit director John Glen (who directed 5 Bond-films later on). the mine sequences are very effective and quite realistic. The claustrophobic feel of the dark, underground mine is well achieved and the sequences are tightly edited. John Gielgud, who gives a very stereotyped - even forgettable, performance (surprisingly so) Moore plays the usual, charismatic and handsome ladies man (it takes roughly 30 minutes before his character has a woman in bed and champagne at the bedside) and that he does always well. Moore is just Moore, and that's why we like him. The actor did "Gold" in-between his first Bond-films ("Live and Let Die (1973)" and "The Man with the Golden Gun (1974)").
