Treasure of the Golden Condor

A moderate round of entertainment is offered in this adventure-swashbuckler that lays its action against Technicolored backgrounds in early France and Guatemala. Ancient Mayan ruins, particularly the earthquake-wrecked city of Antigua, supply a picturesque touch to the phsyical values. Action scenes are good.

A moderate round of entertainment is offered in this adventure-swashbuckler that lays its action against Technicolored backgrounds in early France and Guatemala. Ancient Mayan ruins, particularly the earthquake-wrecked city of Antigua, supply a picturesque touch to the phsyical values. Action scenes are good.

Plot, from a novel by Edison Marshall, deals with Wilde’s efforts to oust a cruel uncle (George Macready) who has usurped his French estates and title. Needing money to prove his rights, Wilde joins forces with Finlay Currie, possessor of a map to a fabulous Mayan treasure, and his daughter (Constance Smith). Back in France his plans are exposed by Anne Bancroft, a selfish girl he hopes to wed.

Wilde is likeable as the dashing hero and has some good swashbuckling moments in the latter portions of the footage. Smith and Bancroft both look good in their costumes. Fay Wray has only a few brief scenes as Macready’s suffering wife.
