George Macready in Treasure of the Condor
2 May 2017 | by habitzgSee all my reviews

Treasure of the Condor was a pretty good movie, especially when compared with the garbage being produced today. Constance White was a beautiful lady, but was very unfortunate in her life and ended tragically. I remember that Cornel Wilde performed all of his own actions...including the movie "The Naked Prey" where he is forced to run for his life through jungle, chased by savages. BUT its Macready that I am asking about. I remember his voice from radio "way back" in the 40's....am I wrong? Its a very distinctive voice, and I swear I remember it because radio was the only entertainment we had in the home. Does anyone remember this? Can anybody confer with me in this mystery? If so, please let me know. habitzg@hotmail.com
