Storyline

Aboard the cargo vessel converted into a luxury cruise ship, S.S. Campari, somewhere in the Caribbean is lying in port, due to a succession of delays. Chief Officer Johnny Carter, who has to put up with a moody Captain, and the unwanted charms of the beautiful young Susan Beresford, realizes these delays are due to sabotage, and that there is something seriously wrong. When the Campari finally sails, a member of the crew is suddenly missing. An unsuccessful stem to stem search for the crew member, with violence suddenly erupting endangers the whole ship. The ship is then controlled by a master criminal, whose intention is not a simple hijacking and ransoming of the wealthy hostages on board. So, what exactly does he have in mind?

Trivia

Alternate Versions

The UK cinema version was cut by the BBFC for an 'A' (PG) certificate to edit a poker torture and the bloody shooting of Dr Marston. Despite the 1990 video release being heavily shortened by around 10 minutes by the distributor and upgraded to a 15 certificate it featured the same UK cinema cuts with an additional 15 secs of edits to remove a woman being shot and closeups of a lock picking.

Not the best Alistair McClean Adaptation but enjoyable all the same
19 December 2007 | by greene515See all my reviews

Alistair McClean's Golden Rendezvous has Richard Harris as first officer Carter who on-board the casino/cargo ship the Caribbean star becomes involved with intrigue and the usual McClean daring do. John Vernon is the villainous Carreas who holds the ship to ransom with an atomic bomb in return for gold bullion, the inspiration for Die- Hard is all too apparent you have Harris sneaking about the ship in a manner all too familiar which Bruce Willis would later emulate Ann Turkel(former Mrs Richard Harris) Burgess Meredith as a shady gambler, John Carradine also a gambler. it's an entertaining film which is unobtainable for years! as luck would have it you can watch this on you-tube! hopefully some bright spark will release this on the shiny format.
