Les éditions DVD autour du monde massacrent régulièrement le film.
Celle-ci est la meilleure et de très loin : format scope respecté, son mono audible en français et anglais...
oui... mais... le contraste est trop élevé et les blancs sont complètement brûlés à l'image, on perd donc des détails et les superbes paysages d'Afrique du Sud en font les frais.
Dommage... fans de Roger Moore celà reste cependant votre seule option !

The action builds slowly but when the mine is in trouble, Roger Moore's character will stop at nothing to save the mine. In the end, he succeeds and he gets the girl as her husband meets his fate and death. When the movie was made, Roger Moore had already starred as James Bond. The music score is good as well as are the supporting cast & characters. I watched the DVD on a CRT based TV set and had no issues with it.
The movie, itself, holds up well in terms of plot and entertainment value. It's essentially the Golfinger plot to destroy a major source of gold with the intent of skyrocketing the market price for mined gold.
There are some great actors in this movie besides Moore; John Guilgud, Ray Milland, Bradford Dillman and Susanah York. They are all fun to watch.
The film takes place in South Africa and it's not afraid to confront the blatant racism there. The apartheid policy was in full effect when this movie was made, but the racism surely still underlies relations between blacks and whites there today, and I was glad to see the movie address it as a minor plot point.
Overall, an entertaining two hours once you get used to the poor print quality.
Overall, I like having this movie on DVD, but I would have liked it better if it had not been altered.
In Gold, Roger Moore stars with Susannah York in this movie about the dire consequences of greed. The plot revolves around South African gold mines and a group of wealthy men who plot to destroy the way of life of one of the South African gold mine wealthy owners to tamper with gold prices in the global market. Once this gold mine is eliminated by flooding, the price of gold should go up making them rather wealthy.
These men are ruthless and in their search for control, power and wealth, they are willing to put the lives of over a thousand men at risk. But, Rod Slater, played by Roger Moore is the manager who foresees the possibilities of catastrophic events and plans accordingly.
Susannah York plays the role of the wife of one of the ruthless men, a hypochondriac who no longer makes her happy. She meets the character played by Moore and enters into an extra-marital relationship that deepens as the days go by.
Thanks to Roger Moore's book, My Word is my bond we find out that because of Apartheid, the legal racial segregation enforced by the National Party government of South Africa between 1948 and 1990, the trade union would not permit filming in South Africa. Much discussion takes place and finally, the crew arrives in Johannesburg in September of 1973 and was able to film without any political message portraying a difference between races.
We also discover that the mines are real and as Roger Moore tells us; "to be faced with real conditions as an actor, helped him bring to life the character of Rod Slater."
Reading Roger Moore's book has opened the door to a new way to enjoy these films because we know the tid-bits of information that would otherwise go unnoticed, making the film more interesting and enjoyable.
If you enjoy film history, read the book and keep a list of the movies mentioned by Moore. See these through the eyes of the actor, sometimes director, and you will find yourselves immersed in a world of fun travel opportunities. Don't miss it!
