Stodgy, well forgotten British/German thriller
27 February 2015 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

THE TREASURE OF SAN TERESA is an odd little British film noir with more intrigue than resolution. It's a sloppily-written little thing that fails to build on relevant Cold War tensions, instead delivering a rather stodgy adventure despite the globe-trotting nature of the narrative. Viewers watching this under the American retitling - HOT MONEY GIRL - will certainly be disappointed!

TREASURE is a UK production made with some West German financing, and stars the reliable Eddie Constantine as a man on the hunt for some missing treasure. Assisting him is the beautiful and exotic Dawn Addams, and hindering him are a couple of foreign heavies (Christopher Lee as the dodgy Jaeger and Walter Gotell as a copper).

Sadly the production has little life or atmosphere to recommend it and indeed things only pick up right at the train station climax. Until that point it's a run-of-the-mill production in which the lack of budget and ambition is always well apparent.
