Jack Brown and the Curse of the Crown
UK, 2001

Owen Teale, Daniela Nardini, John Standing, Honor Blackman
Directed by Andrew Gillman


The mythical crown of Cleopatra is known to be able to convey enormous power to its wearer. Movie star Madeleine Duboit wants to commission ex-security expert Jack Brown to 'borrow' the crown from the British Museum so she can play her big final role. At the same time vain and pompous businessman Seldon Gotti offers Jack an enormous sum of money to steal the crown to fulfil his dreams of world domination. As a man of morals, Jack turns them both down, but a series of threats soon leads him to a showdown at Gotti's lair.
