Trivia

Sara Montiel was originally cast for the role of Teresa and filmed some sequences in the Matto Grosso jungle. There are stills where she is seen handling a big snake, possibly an anaconda, along with Glenn Ford, Cesar Romero and others in the cast. In her 2000 autobiography Sara relates how the production ran out of money in Brazil and everybody was sent back to Hollywood with canceled contracts. Months later she was called to resume filming but by then she had signed with Warner Bros. and could not finish "El Americano." She was replaced by Abbe Lane and her scenes were re-shot. See more »

Goofs

The language of Brazil is Portuguese, yet every "native" in this movie either speaks Spanish or a terrible mix of the two. See more »

Rather boring!
2 November 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was not a very good movie. It was so corny and lame. I did not like watching it. Glenn Ford is at his worst and his performance is rather sad. I really would not recommend this movie! There was not really anything good about it. But I have seen worse movies. I give it a 1 1/2 out of 5.
