Without the 3-D, not much to see
24 August 2000 | by (Western New York) – See all my reviews

The long climax of this film occurs in a stranded cable car high over the mountains of a fictional Latin American vacationers' paradise; without benefit of the 3-D process in which the movie was originally shot, it seems fairly routine, even for its day. Beyond that, the film can be considered "noir" only by the most generous definition. It's basically a south-of-the-border romantic adventure between prizefighter Robert Mitchum and bad-girl-gone-good Linda Darnell, with Jack Palance as (of course) the heavy. Not a total waste of time if you find it on TV and have not much else to do, but definitely nothing to go out of your way for (and I've seen out-of-print videos going for $70!).
