Storyline

The wealthy playboy son of an assassinated South American diplomat discovers that his father was really murdered on orders of the corrupt president of the country--a man who was his father's friend and who, in fact, his father had helped put into power. He returns from living a jet-set life in Europe to lead a revolution against the government, only to find out that things aren't quite as black and white as he had assumed.

Trivia

Publicity suggested that Harold Robbins had sold the film rights to his novel to Joe Levine (for a million dollars) before he had actually written any of it. Levine was said to have been persuaded simply by the title, which Robbins had come up with before working out a plot to go with it. A persistent legend claims that Robbins had shown Levine a few chapters of the book and, when Levine had excitedly asked what happened next, replied that he had no idea. See more »

Goofs

The second time the Lockheed Super Constellation is taking off the next shot shows the shadow of a Douglas DC-7, not the Super Constellation. The Super Constellation has three rudders, the DC-7 only one; the shadow shows only one rudder. See more »

This movie IS trash !
21 June 2000 | by Xanadu-2See all my reviews

I bought it on video and it was so long it was on two tapes! So a lot of fast forwarding was needed for the countless war scenes. But it was worth the wait to get to the high sixties segments, the overall best being (for the plot totally unnecessary) the fashion shows! But oh, it was the films´ highlight. Super camp fashion numbers out of the blue but totally appropriate for a high gloss sixties movie. It was released 1970, I wonder if it all seemed a little out of date even then?

Loads of stars, even lesser like an early Jaclyn Smith and the underrated underused Angela Scoular (of On Her Majesties Secret Service). But the best is Candice Bergen. SO stunningly beautiful the screen almost melted and she did some fine acting even if she thought she hadn´t. She played a lesbian again and she ends up bitter and chain-smoking. (Hollywood logic).
