Movie Summary

Director:
Ronald Neame
Released:
1950
Rating:
Not Available
The Golden Salamander tackles the issues of organized crime, institutional evils, and the sin of remaining silent. This romantic action film is based on the novel of the same name by Victor Canning. The lead character is David Redfern (Trevor Howard), an archeologist on a mission in Tunisia to recover some artifacts lost from a British museum, who comes afoul of some gun runners. The archeologist must decide whether to back out or take on the criminals. As the plot develops, he discovers how embedded the organization is in the local government and its ties to the French one. He also makes a French conquest - the female lead Anna (Anouk Aimee) - and learns of the suffering caused by the criminals. The audience witnesses David's transformation from scientist to action hero, the blossoming love affair and the workings of an organized crime group in a series of battles, chases and intrigues against the Tunisian version of the mob.
