12 Plus 1 ★★★ The Thirteen Chairs 1970 (R)

A man sells 13 chairs left to him by his aunt, only to find that one of them contained a hidden fortune. He chases across Europe in search of each of them. Some good cameos help move this remake of a Russian folktale along, but it remains lightweight. Tate's last movie, before her death at the hands of Manson and his “family.” 94m/C VHS . FR IT Sharon Tate, Orson Welles, Vittorio Gassman, Mylene Demongeot, Terry-Thomas, Tim Brooke; Cameos: Vittorio De Sica; D: Nicolas Gessner.
