| money caper. First half moves quite slow.
George Sanders steals the show in this caper, which stars Ernie Kovacs and Cyd Charisse. Kovacs, who only acted part time, is probably better known for his role in "Bell, Book, Candle", which is on TV all the time. Cyd Charisse, professional dancer, plays the mourning widow, and almost had a starring role with MM in Something's Got to Give. Five Golden Hours starts pretty slow. After a dragging first half hour, we finally find out about the widow's financial problems (26 minutes in...) and what "five golden hours" represents.. Then it's after that that Aldo Bondi (Kovacs) proposes a solution to the financial woes. There are plot twists, and the second half of this film could almost be a Mel Brooks movie, (moving much quicker than the first half) when filming on various locations such as a monastery and others. Clever ending... pay close attention!
