'THE PRICE OF 'GOLD',
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gold (1974) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
A group of high-flying businessmen plan to have 'South Africa's' largest
gold mine flooded to inflate the gold prices world wide, making a financial
killing, to ensure success they have the mines chairman's son-in-law 'Manfred
Steyner' in their pocket.
When the mines general manager dies by accident whilst working in the mine,
'Manfred' has lost his on-site puppet.
'Manfred' manages to persuade father-in-law 'Hurry Hirschfeld' to appoint
'Rod Slater' a young contender for the post,'Manfred' believes the cavalier
attitude of the new appointment will be the ideal candidate to attribute
blame to when the plan to 'blast' and flood the mine succeeds.
The film builds up toward a tense and gripping conclusion.
The picture quality on 'blu-ray' is superior to the DVD version, the sound
has been enhanced to a satisfactory level.
The story is of corruption and greed with a total disregard for the lives
that would be lost if the plan succeeds.
Enjoyable, well worth a spin.
There is little in the way of additional features.....just a 'Roger Moore'
documentary and trailers.

I feel I merely outlined the plot for the film, and did make
a comment on picture and sound quality.
