Aboard the cargo vessel converted into a luxury cruise ship SS Campari somewhere in the Caribbean is lying in port due to a succession of delays. Chief Officer Johnny Carter, who has to put up a moody captain and the unwanted charms of the beautiful young Susan Beresford, realizes these delays are due to sabotage and that there is something seriously wrong. When the Campari finally sails, a member of the crew is suddenly missing. An unsuccessful stem to stem search for the crew member, with violence suddenly erupting endangers the whole ship. The ship is then controlled by a master criminal whose intention is not a simple hijacking and ransoming of the wealthy hostages on board, so what exactly does he have in mind? Written by
Not the best Alistair McClean Adaptation but enjoyable all the same
Alistair McClean's Golden Rendezvous has Richard Harris as first officer Carter who on-board the casino/cargo ship the Caribbean star becomes involved with intrigue and the usual McClean daring do. John Vernon is the villainous Carreas who holds the ship to ransom with an atomic bomb in return for gold bullion, the inspiration for Die- Hard is all too apparent you have Harris sneaking about the ship in a manner all too familiar which Bruce Willis would later emulate Ann Turkel(former Mrs Richard Harris) Burgess Meredith as a shady gambler, John Carradine also a gambler. it's an entertaining film which is unobtainable for years! as luck would have it you can watch this on you-tube! hopefully some bright spark will release this on the shiny format.
