La montagna di luce / Temple of a Thousand Lights (1965) Umberto Lenzi, Richard Harrison, Luciana Gilli, Wilbert Bradley, Adventure

Here is an interesting variation of the popular heist flick genre. Richard Harrison stars as Alan Foster, a notorious bank robber from NYC hiding out in India. He get the bright idea to steal the “Mountain of Light,” a large diamond encased in the forehead of a 20 foot religious Buddha (which is currently stuck on the crown of the Queen of England in real life). This is an adequate adventure that is notable for Harrison’s extremely harsh words he throws at his Indian helper and the scenes where Harrison dons make up to blend it flawlessly with the Indians. Seriously, he passes by without a second glance from anyone even though he is standing out like Anna Nicole Smith at a Mensa function. The film was directed without much style by Umberto Lenzi but does feature some stunning sets and locations (it was shot in Malaysia)
