Movie of the Week: The Adventurers
Of all the films made from trashy Harold Robbins best-sellers, The Adventurers (1970) is the biggest and perhaps the trashiest (we’ll discuss The Lonely Lady another time). This three hour epic tells the tale of a boy who crawls from the depths of poverty to become an international playboy, gigolo, businessman and revolutionary leader.
