British distributors Odeon Entertainment will bring to Blu-ray director Peter Hunt's action drama Gold (1974), starring Roger Moore, Susannah York, Ray Milland, John Gielgud, and Bradford Dillman. Recently remastered, Gold will be available for purchase online and in shops across the United Kingdom on November 11th.
Rod Slater (Moore, Live and Let Die) becomes involved in a web of intrigue following a rock fall at a South African gold mine owned by Harry Hirschfeld (Milland, Dial M for Murder), in which general manager and veteran miner Frank Lemmer (Norman Coombes) is killed. Hirschfield's managing director, Manfred Steyner (Bradford Dillman), is plotting with financier Farrell (John Gielgud) to flood the Big Dyke, thus destroying the mine and raising the value of gold worldwide, and tricks Slater into excavating the seam of gold beyond the river. Meanwhile, Slater becomes passionately involved with Steyner's wife (Susannah York), unaware that the scheme hatched by her husband will result in his death.
