The British-German Treasure of San Teresa is known by a variety of titles, including Hot Money Girl, Long Distance and Rhapsody in Blie. Perennial action hero Eddie Constantine plays an ex-OSS operative who returns to Czechoslovakia after the war. The mercenary Constantine hopes to recover a fortune in jewels that he'd hidden during the war at the behest of a German general. He is aided and abetted by Dawn Addams, the general's supposedly untrustworthy daughter. Crosses, double-crosses and triple-crosses abound before the film's ironic Treasure of Sierra Madre-like denouement.
