The Bay of Saint Michel

Curse of San Michel
Operation Mermaid
Pattern for Plunder

1963

John Ainsworth
Director

Group of WW2 vets are reunited to hunt for Nazi treasure on Mont Saint-Michel.

Run of the mill but enjoyable adventure yarn with a decent cast, though the plot twist could be predicted by an undiscovered Amazon tribe.I sort of wonder if this was an unsold TV pilot.

Note: Faulkner's character is usually referred to as Dave, but called 'Dean' on the briefing tape.

Thanks as always to Philly for helping ID unknowns!
