Storyline

1945 - Castle Kronberg, outside Frankfurt, is turned into a 'country club' for victorious American officers. The cynical Colonel Jack Durant and the dazzling beautiful Lieutenant Kathleen Nash uncover the crown jewels of Germany - more diamonds, rubies, emeralds, sapphires and pearls than are gathered in any one place outside the Tower of London. Nash and Durant manage to get the gems to New York, where they must deal with gangsters to fence the loot. To make matters worse for the two renegade officers, Princess Sophie discovers the theft of her jewels and complains to American army headquarters. It now turns out that her brother fought for the Allies and is about to marry the future Queen of England. With double-crossing gangland figures trying to control the gems and the army closing in on them, will Kathy Nash and Jack Durant stay true to one other and their plan? Or will one sell the other out? Written by Anonymous

A true story about finding a priceless treasure and the costs of keeping it. Enough twists to keep you guessing. I say C
7 January 2011 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

Based on a true story about a group of WWII US army officers who take a treasure of priceless gems from a castle in Germany and there plans to get rich from it. After the fall of Nazi Germany Colonel Jack Durant (Zane) is assigned to a castle formerly belonging to the Hessen family. After stumbling onto the German crown jewels he and 3 others try to find a way to get them back to the US. This movie was pretty much what I expected. Though it is a movie movie it had the look and feel of a TV movie from a cable channel. Nothing special but fairly entertaining. The movie is full of double crosses and them playing one off of another keeps you guessing who is being honest and who is only in it for themselves. A fairly slow moving movie but interesting enough to keep you watching till the end. I give it a C.
