THE MASTER TOUCH (Theatrical Release USA 1974)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.9|5.0 Starsìì

The Master Touch—predictable story accompanied with weak acting—contains one hook to keep an audience engaged: will Kirk Douglas and Guiliano Gemma’s characters get caught? The fact that we care is an ode to the charisma that drove Kirk Douglas’ career throughout his long and prolific life.

Storyline

A safecracker doesn’t learn a lesson from prison and plans one last job after his release.
