Caroline DuLac, a baroness and concert pianist, steals three jewel-encrusted Faberge eggs from a San Francisco museum. The eggs were demanded as ransom for her kidnapped fiancé. She boards a plane for the Latin American city of Ladera, as per instructions, and is met by Mike Chambers. Caroline first believes that Mike is one of the kidnappers, until a mysterious man in a trench-coat tries to kill her, and Mike comes to the rescue. They are then both captured by a band of Mexican bandits, who also may or may not be part of the scheme. Written by alfiehitchie

Not classic Audrey by any means but...
3 January 2003 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

Certainly worth watching for the cast alone. Hepburn and a bearish Robert Wagner spend much of their time sniping wickedly at each other in this otherwise standard stolen goods adventure. It is sometimes funny, occasionally offbeat (the bandit's ball is a very bizarre trip), and offers a few tiny surprises along the way. Also interesting to see Jerry Orbach, best known as smartass detective Lenny Briscoe on NBC's "Law & Order", playing a rotten creep on Audrey's trail. Only problem I had with the film is the hideous red & white polka-dotted dress Aud' wears in the first half of the film, made up for somewhat by two gorgeous Givenchy gowns elsewhere in the production. There's also featured a fabulous villain's mansion hidden away in the Latin-American desert at which I wouldn't mind vacationing!
