I *LOVED* the Book "King Solomon's Mines" by H. Rider Haggard, and thought I should see the movie. I was warned to stay away from the 1985 remake, so I went with this one. This is a very good movie, especially for 1950, although characters and parts of the book were either left out or switched around. Stewart Granger is good as the hunter Allan Quatermain, and Deborah Kerr, although her character has nothing to do with the book what-so-ever, played her part well as Elizabeth Curtis. I was surprised to find out this film was shot entirely on location in Africa. It also has some great nature shots. This movie is hard to find or see on TV, so spring for the chance to see it if you get one! Even if you're not an adventure fan, this is still a good one. (It was nominated for best picture.) 4 out of 4 stars for "King Solomon's Mines!" But, don't stop there--READ THE BOOK!!!!!
