Trivia

During filming, Sir Richard Harris was being sued for one and a half million dollars by the producers of Golden Rendezvous (1977). They claimed he had re-written the script, had caused the production to go forty-four days behind schedule, and was drinking a bottle of vodka a day. The case was settled out of court. See more »

Disaster
22 April 2000 | by jaiboSee all my reviews

A complete pile of hooey! This is one of the most muddled movies you'll ever see. None of the plot makes any sense, characters come and go without rhyme nor reason (in fact Roundtree is killed at one point and then appears again a few scenes later - and he isn't playing Jesus!). The biggest disappointment is reserved for fans of La Collins - she makes a tiny cameo appearance moments before the end, for no good reason, then the film finishes. Audience breathes a sigh of relief.
