Decent Thriller
4 December 2017 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

I remember this film well from its cinema release.I also remember visiting Mont St Michel which is a big tourist attraction.It is a reasonable thriller which utilises the common plot device of Nazi gold.Keenan Wynn is the parachuted in American star,and he does a reasonable job in his leading role.This was not really a B film more a co feature.
