Storyline

In Nassaum, a border town in an intrigue-infested Central European republic, the body of Dr. Charles Berens, Chief of the United Nations Medical Relief Organization, is seen hurtling from the lofty parapet of an ancient church. He has chosen death rather than capitulate to his murderous pursuers. Police chief Colonel Ferrer arrives in time to hear the dying Berens gasp" "July the 18th! The One Eyed Soldiers." Unaware he has heard the words that are the key to the location of a fabulous hidden treasure, Ferrer returns to his headquarters. The pursuit and death of Berens has been observed by The Fat Man/Harold Schmidt with more than passing interest, and begins a series of chilling events involving many people. One of them is Beren's daughter, Gava, because "the key" was meant to be passed to her, and another is American newspaperman Richard Owen, an innocent bystander, who gets caught up in the search and intrigue.

Murky thriller
31 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

An American journalist (Dale Robertson), traveling on the Intercontinental Express through the former Yugoslavia, meets a beautiful but enigmatic woman (Luciana Paluzzi) on board, and gets caught up in an adventure involving the search for some "one-eyed soldiers", who hold the key (literally) to a massive fortune. Of course, those two are not the only ones involved in this peculiar treasure hunt. An even bigger mystery than the one related to the title is how Luciana Paluzzi, who had shown the whole world that she combined top-class looks with a commanding screen presence with her role as the classic femme fatale Fiona Volpe in the James Bond film "Thunderball" in 1965, found herself in this obviously B-grade production just one year later. The story is murky and generally uninteresting until the last 10 minutes or so. Paluzzi herself begins as a more dynamic character than she ends up being. This film is only for her completists. (*1/2)
