Noel Holcroft is a foreign-born American citizen working in New York as an architect. In Geneva he meets with a respected Swiss banker who tells him he has been designated to be executor of a huge 4 1/2 billion dollar trust fund designed to make reparations for the war crimes of the Nazis. Holcroft's father, who committed suicide in 1945, was a key Hitler financial advisor who became conscience-stricken about German war atrocities, turned against the Fuehrer, and covertly diverted Nazi funds to a secret Swiss account. Under the terms of the covenant Holcroft must locate the sons of his father's two associates so they can jointly activate their fathers' account. They battle the sinister forces seem to be trying to prevent them from signing the document as it is believed that it will be used to establish a Fourth Reich.
In the latter part of the film, it is said that the Covenant has cost six lives, but the body count at that time is nine.
Michael Caine's New York apartment has stairs in front because a London location was used. Manhattan apartment houses do not have a flight of stairs in front.
The letter Manfredi gives Holcroft, despite being 40 years ago, looks brand new.
