Mining the profitable vein of Day of the Jackal, this tale of conspiracy and assassination has General Patton murdered by subordinates involved in a vast gold heist. The movie goes for several targets - historical significance, murky intrigue, Bond-style techno-glamour - but misses them all. Loren, as the woman with a past, drifts in and out of a defiantly labyrinthine plot which reaches rock bottom with the revelation that Patton's adjutant's mistress' ex-husband was (maybe) a Nazi cabinet minister. Pretty thin.
