The lead role was originally intended for Stewart Granger, but MGM decided to employ Clark Gable instead. Production chief Dore Schary suggested to Granger that the film would entail a long separation from his wife Jean Simmons, though Granger wanted to make the film regardless and later spoke disparagingly about Gable in his memoirs.

I would like to share with those of you who might be interested to know that my Father Mr Abiodun Oke Hughes was part of the tribal cast in this film.
I remember growing up with that in mind and though I did a search for the cast tribe here on this site, unfortunately there wasn't one available to me.
So I wanted to do this, so all concerned would know how much we all still have the fondest memories of all his wondrous adventures while he was growing up.
Dad was only just in his 30's when this film was made and when I captured that 5 second shot of him out in the jungle, though it's only for a few seconds it still makes me proud to see it.
It still amazes me to know that my Dad worked along side the most unforgettable stars.
I guess I'm very proud to know the things I do about him. So I'd like to add my Father's memory for those of you out there, not only for my Family but also for my Dad. (may he rest in peace) So here's to you Daddy.
Abiodun Oke Hughes (19-12 to 19-86) We all love and Miss you
