Elke Sommer's movies are always ones to seek out
6 February 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

"The Treasure Seekers" is one of the many '70s action movies with giant casts. In this case, old friends Rod Taylor and Stuart Whitman accidentally meet in Jamaica and learn of pirate Capt. Morgan's sunken treasure of the coast. Sure enough, others are keen to find it, and will probably stop at nothing to keep the two men from succeeding.

Admittedly, this movie pure, corny escapism. But believe you me, it's the good kind! I mean, any movie starring Elke Sommer is something to admire. I wish that they'd shown more of her here (by that, I don't necessarily mean give her more screen time; I mean show her wearing less). If I lean too much in her favor, it's just that I've had a crush on her for years. I kept wondering what she looked like under those clothes (if that makes me a pervert, so be it).

So, it's a nice, fun, silly time. Also starring is Keenan Wynn in a role mildly reminiscent of Gen. Bat Guano in "Dr. Strangelove". Worth seeing. Available in Portland's video/DVD store Movie Madness.
