PlotEdit

The movie starts with the dangerous and cold-blooded arms dealer Kharoun, who is getting rid of his competitors and adversaries with his army of highly trained killers. The next one on his list is Prince Malko, which location he already has tracked down and planned to attack. But Malko survives the bombing of his castle and flees to the CIA headquarters in New York where he learns that Kharoun owns the serum for a biological mass destruction weapon. After a second murder attempt on Malko, he decides to face Kharoun and goes in for a counterattack.

ProductionEdit

It was written by Joshua Sauli as an adaptation of two Gérard de Villiers' novels of his SAS series about the Austrian secret agent Malko Linge. It stars Richard Young as Malko Linge along with Mel Ferrer, Ben Cross, Paul L. Smith, F. Murray Abraham and Susannah Hoffman.

This was the final film for McLaglen, director of many well-known Westerns starring the likes of John Wayne, James Stewart and Dean Martin.
