Auhtor Helen MacInnes has been served rather poorly by Hollywood, which has adapted her excellent espionage thrillers into mediocre films at best. THE SALZBURG CONNECTION, however, is the absolute worst. Newman, an American lawyer vacationing in Salzburg, unwittingly becomes involved with

international secret agents--all of whom want a chest containing a list of Nazi collaborators and war criminals. As agents from the US, USSR, China, and neo-Nazi organizations fight among themselves for possession of the list, Newman finds time to romance beautiful widow Karina, whose husband was

killed as an innocent participant in the debacle. Unfortunately, her brother, Brandauer, is one of the neo-Nazis after the coveted list. Solid performances from Karina and Brandauer help save this otherwise confusing thriller. Most of the film's problems stem from the direction by Lee H. Katzin,

who even fails to bring excitement to a car chase here. This is remarkable in that he previously directed LE MANS (1971), a film about the Grand Prix.
