Nobody Runs Forever ★★

The actors Rod Taylor, Christopher Plummer, Lilli Palmer, Camilla Sparv, Daliah Lavi are satisfactory, but the scenario, about the intrigues surrounding Australian High Commissioner Plummer as he leads a conference on world food security, is a mess, confused and ultimately pointless.

The film is based on Jon Cleary’s novel The High Commisioner (1966) that introduced Australian detective Scobie Malone who subsequently has been featured in twenty novels. Hopefully, Malone in the novels is a more successful character than Malone in the film, who is one of the least effective detectives in movie history.
