Synopsis

The Steel Claw
George Montgomery directs, stars, and co-scripts this routine, somewhat dated wartime drama set in the Philippines during World War II. Capt. John Larsen (Montgomery) has to go behind enemy lines at the beginning of the war to rescue a general from Japanese captivity. Instead of breezing through the assignment, Larsen discovers that the general has died, and it is almost impossible to get back to his rendezvous point. Filipino guerrillas help him out, but then he is handicapped by an injured woman in need of medical attention. The "steel claw" of the title is a hook that the one-handed Larsen fastens onto himself, a prosthetic straight out of Peter Pan. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Samar
Before going into the furniture business full-time, actor George Montgomery produced and directed a number of lively Philippine-based actioners. In Samar, Montgomery plays a mercenary who is shipped off to a 19th-century Spanish penal colony. The man in charge of Samar, played by Gilbert Roland, is a kindly sort who operates his prison on democratic principles. Evil inspector Nico Minardos disapproves of Roland's humanitarian treatment of his prisoners, and orders that Samar be closed. Roland responds by destroying the camp, freeing the prisoners, and taking Minardos hostage. With Montgomery's help, Roland escapes into the jungle, seeking out a new, more remote location for his idealized prison without walls. Samar is more laudable for its good intentions than its uneven execution. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Satan's Harvest
George Montgomery directs and stars in in this location-filmed adventure (for reasons unknown, TV prints credit the direction to one "Douglas K. Stone"). Montgomery heads to South Africa when he inherits a Johannesburg estate. But the place is run down, and the overseers seem surly and secretive. Having been a detective in the States, Montgomery puts his deductive skills to work. He soon learns that his estate is a front for a drug-smuggling operation. In between spurts of violence, Satan's Harvest is a disarmingly pleasant travelogue of South Africa. Tippi Hedren, then a resident of the region depicted herein, costars. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Guerrillas in Pink Lace
Hollywood movie star (and future ace cabinet maker) George Montgomery spent much of the early 1960s trying to establish himself as a producer/director. Like most of his directorial efforts, Guerillas in Pink Lace was lensed in the Philippines and suffers from cheesy production values, but all in all has of few isolated moments of genuine merit. The titular guerillas are not cross-dressers but women, a group of showgirls stranded in Manila at the time of the 1941 Japanese invasion. Barely escaping with their lives, the girls take to the hills, where they matriculate into A-number-one freedom fighters. Outside of Montgomery, who also stars, the biggest "name" connected with Guerillas in Pink Lace is Joan Shawlee, a brassy-blonde actress best known for her comedy work with Abbott and Costello and Billy Wilder. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
