I, too, have wished for years that I could see this movie again. I was about eight when I saw it. Richard Denning, as Jackra, did lure the renegade elephant to follow him to a cliff. He swung out over the cliff on a vine, ala Tarzan, and the elephant charged over the cliff. I seem to remember he had a tame lion or tiger that had jumped on the back of the elephant, but that was thrown to its death. I probably cried at that. This scene has stuck in my mind for more than 50 years, and I would really love to see it again. I could remember the title, but never could find a plot summary that mentioned this scene.
