The Odessa File (1974)

Director: Ronald Neame. Cast: Jon Voight, Maximilian Schell, Derek Jacobi. 130 min. Rated PG. UK/West Germany. Thriller.

Based on a novel by Fredrick Forsyth of "The Day of the Jackal" fame, and by The Poseidon Adventure director, this Jon Voight starring Nazi-hunt thriller takes some James Bond-inspired liberties from the original material, but still can't compete - even by 70s standards. Then again, I have a weak spot for cross-country chases of the era's movies (even if Sean Connery isn't driving), so I'll give this one a passing score.
