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
This was Audrey Hepburn's first TV movie since a 1957 production of Mayerling, and the last feature-length production in which she would take a starring role. According to biographies of the actress, she reportedly agreed to do this obscure telefilm just for the fun of it. See more »
The Countess and Chambers are robbed by bandits in their car, which appears to be stripped, yet after the "wedding ceremony" not only is the car intact, the Countess still has her bags with the eggs in it. See more »
Audrey Hepburn was in very few films in the 80's. This was the worst of the lot. At the start Audrey steals some treasures from a museum and is later inolved with a host of characters that have some interest in her loot. The acting was mediocre. The plot was predictable and boring.
