Eureka, released in 1983, follows an Arctic gold prospector, Jack McCann (Gene Hackman), who discovers a massive gold deposit in 1925. He has searched for fifteen years, all alone. The film picks up years later in 1945, where Jack is living a luxurious lifestyle on a private Caribbean island, but is terribly unhappy. He is surrounded by his alcoholic and dissatisfied wife, Helen (Jane Lapotaire), and his beloved and stubborn daughter, Tracy (Theresa Russell), who has married herself to a cheating, overly ambitious jerk. At the same time, Jack and his island have attracted the unwanted attentions of the Mafia, who attempt to persuade him to allow a casino at his home. Directed by Nicolas Roeg, this film is based on the actual murder of Sir Harry Oakes, a philanthropist and gold prospector discovered dead in his home in the Bahamas in 1943. Though there are many theories on who committed the crime, there has been no murderer found.
