A couple of the indiana jones movies ripped off this crazy thing of a movie....a suspension bridge in middle of nowhere, climbing a sheer cliff, cliff explodes----pure indiana jones nonsense.
Time Out saysMatinee adventure material (from a novel by Will Henry) blown up to deliciously absurd proportions, as the gold-lust clichés tumble from Carl Foreman's typewriter to be treated by the assembled stellar multitudes as if they were fresh-minted bullion. Peck's sheriff has The Map, everyone else wants it. Everyone double-crosses everyone else. And in the Lost Canyon of Gold there's...(wait for it)...an ironic Conclusion. Treasure of the Sierra Madness.
