As a variety of the mineral beryl the emerald is a gemstone that is colored green and contains trace amounts of chromium and vanadium.Its name derives from the ancient Greek word "smaragdos" which means "green gem".Although mined since 1500 BCE in ancient Egypt the largest producer of emeralds is Colombia with 50-95% of the world production.

Stewart Granger in Colombia
11 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

I've never really enjoyed this film when it was repeated on television, and I still haven't changed my opinion. Both Stewart Granger and Grace Kelly are wasted in this film, even though Kelly was past her best after 'Dial M For Murder'. Granger still had 'Moonfleet' ahead of him, but this film does nothing to add to his canon of films except to have the opportunity to work with Kelly. In his autobiography, 'Sparks Fly Upwards', Granger says 'Grace had one phobia, her behind.' Admittedly, I did notice that her behind stuck out when Paul Douglas embraced her. In the final scene when Grace and Stewart kiss, he says in his autobiography that the torrential downpour 'accentuated that fabulous behind. To save her embarrassment, I covered it with both hands.' I bet Paul Douglas would have wanted to do the same thing.

Although the film is awful, reading about Stewart's experience of making the film is interesting.
