Storyline

Robert Talbot and Leopold Garcia are two charming gunrunners who met in Rhodesia years ago, befriended, and partnered up. Their latest venture takes them to a small desert place in Africa, where they get ambushed and mugged by some guards. It turns out they're on the property of the Colonel, a tough good looking widow of a wealthy white ranch owner, who fought alongside the real life Nazi German general Rommel in WWII. The husband has been murdered and she blames the local poor black population for this crime. As an act of vengeance, she plans to cut off the water supply to the local population, so the government threatens to nationalize her land and throw her out. She hires Bob and Leo to help her, but they don't like the idea of punishing the townsfolk, so they instead investigate her late husband's old shady competitor Killian, who plans to marry the Colonel's cute nineteen-year-old daughter Suzanna in an arranged marriage. Meanwhile, the Colonel falls for Leo and Suzanna falls for...

Movie drought
6 July 2017 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Filmed in Tel Aviv, alleged comedy concerns wealthy ranch owner Sally Kellerman locking up access to the water well on her land until the villagers confess who murdered her husband; Tony Curtis and Louis Gossett Jr. are American mercenaries who try talking her out of it before the government gets involved (Curtis also likes Kellerman's 19-year-old daughter while Gossett gets a yen for the lady boss). Canadian-French-Israeli co-production has good performances by the three principals, also from John Vernon as Sally's would-be suitor, but the witless screenplay doesn't allow any of them to show off and have fun. Kellerman has a long, breathy speech at dinner that serves no purpose, while Curtis' courting of young Lisa Langlois hits a dead end. * from ****
