" Slater, you're a Maniac, but , l like your style "
On the continent of Africa you'll find many an area which can brag of owning a Gold mine. It's interesting that this film was more about the behind-the-scenes intrigue, than of the actual mining process. Yet, the story called which is about rich greedy men wanting to get richer, is central to this movie called " Gold ". Were it not for the serious actors involved in the project, this story would have remained underground. However, herein we have Roger Moore as Rod Slater, a top notch, engineer, who hates digging for Gold, only to have other men bury it again. Nevertheless, he is hired to oversee a very dangerous tunnel gamble which according to his boss, Manfred Steyner (Bradford Dillman), will make a nice bonus for the shareholders. What he is not told, is that the project could cost thousands of miners their lives. Oscar winner, Ray Milland plays Harry Hirschfeld the owner of the mine who as a straight-forward boss is a hindrance to conspirators who wish him ill. John Gielgud plays Mr. Farrell, a rich financier, who would like a Christmas bonus, regardless of the human tragedy. Simon Sabela is 'Big King' a man who the audience can tell is as big as the courage he displays. Susannah York is Terry Steyner, the boss's daughter and major player in the secret scheme. A good drama. ****
