Manfred Steyner: It's the work of experts.
Rod Slater (Roger Moore): That depends on what one thinks of experts, doesn't it?
Manfred Steyner: And what do you think of experts, Mr. Slater?
Rod Slater (Roger Moore): [angrily] Well, sometimes they're right and sometimes they're wrong, but they don't do the digging!

Just To Put A Charm Around A Ladys' Neck
29 July 1999 | by (NYC USA) – See all my reviews

Despite the collapse of the gold price in recent months here is a movie whose value is assured. Taken from the novel "Gold Mine" by the one and only Wilbur Smith we get to see just how dangerous the world of mining is. Nerve splitting scenes in the aftermath of a rock fall, explosions, underground amputations, the calamity of an underground flood, deceit, conspiracy, loyalty, betrayl, murder, sex, tribal dance, heroics, more heroics (it was penned by Wilbur Smith) and the lengths to which men will go just to put a charm around a ladys' neck.
