Trivia

Assistant director Tony Kelly disappeared while shooting second-unit footage along the Zambesi River in Rhodesia. When the crew's boat overturned, the other two crew members were able to swim to safety but Kelly, although the strongest swimmer of them all, disappeared in the water. It is thought he was trying to save the camera equipment and many theories were offered for the disappearance, the most fearful being that he had been taken by crocodiles. No body was ever found.

Dana Andrews & Jeanne Crain in African safari
13 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interesting adventure in which Dana Andrews plays an insurance investigator who goes to Africa to check out the death by drowning of a man ( David Farrar ) who had a million dollar insurance policy. Also looking for info regarding the allegedly dead man is his wife, Jeanne Crain. Pretty fast paced drama, the last portion of the film set in the African jungle. Dana Andrews & Jeanne Crain were one of the great film pairings. Besides this film, they were also in State Fair, Madison Avenue, and Hot Rods to Hell. I had seen this film as a kid & it had kept me on the edge of my seat. It doesn't get much play these days--but I did find a DVD thru a collector. Seeing the film again was a thrill.
