An Excellent Thriller!
27 June 2010 | by John1986See all my reviews

A good film, with a lot of great actors (Robert Wagner, Teri Garr and Barbara Perkins.) The film has a good story, and the music is nice (by Nick Bicât). It's a film about a conspiracy to kidnap the Duke Of Windsor, in the year 1940. But a Nightclub singer (Teri Garr) discovers the plot, and with Joe Jackson (Robert Wagner) she tries to protect the Duke against the S.S. and Nazi-Germany.

The film has a nice story, which is based on the book "To Catch A King" by Harry "Jack Higgins" Patterson. The only thing i don't like is the ending.

Thanks for reading my review.
