Cold Sweat

A Franco-Italian quickie, made in 1970 but kept out of American release for four years before it made the rounds to capitalize on the Charles Bronson boom. It should have been kept out permanently. Bronson stars as an expatriate charter boat captain in the south of France who gets mixed up with a gang of international goons and drug smugglers (headed by an atrociously southern-accented James Mason). Liv Ullmann expends most of her considerable acting talent trying to keep from looking embarrassed, and Jill Ireland (Bronson's wife at the time) demonstrates precisely why we never saw much of her in Bronson's (or anyone else's) films—one nonactor in the family was enough. Terence Young directed. 94 min.
