Piloting with Roger Davis and Dack Rambo
10 May 2009 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

Handsome beach drifters Roger Davis (as Marcus McAllister) and Dack Rambo (as Riley Briggs) take their boat down the coast of Mexico, to look for pretty women and sunken treasure. While Mr. Davis spies on a nearby yacht party, Mr. Rambo goes scuba diving. Rambo surfaces without treasure, and the two watch jet-setters arrive at the party via helicopter. The men are shocked when a beautiful woman drops from the helicopter and disappears into the ocean. While Rambo goes underwater to look for her, Davis is nearly killed by a ship helmed by sinister Ray Milland (as Evelyn Rose).

Soon, Mr. Milland fishes both men out of the water. Milland is somehow connected to the lost lady, and wants Davis and Rambo to stop searching. The duo manage to escape Milland's clutches with a clue - the missing woman's compact. This leads them to widow Suzanne Pleshette (as Anna), who was married to the lover of the missing woman. Davis falls in love with Pleshette, which irks Milland crew member Jorge Luke (as Tomas). And, Rambo becomes obsessed with finding the woman they saw disappear into the ocean…

Rambo and Davis keep it going, but this high-rated "ABC Movie of the Week" doesn't end up being very compelling. Although they are higher billed, Milland and Pleshette are supporting players. Milland had just had a late career peak in "Love Story" and Pleshette would soon hook up with Bob Newhart. Rambo was coming off "The Guns of Will Sonnett" and Davis was in between "Dark Shadows" and "Alias Smith and Jones". All very likable performers. Watch for Rambo to call Pedro Armendáriz Jr. (as Angel) by his real name, and be corrected - the two actors handle the name confusion smoothly.

***** River of Gold (3/9/71) David Friedkin ~ Dack Rambo, Roger Davis, Ray Milland
