Goofs

Latimer's light plane runs out of fuel and the engine quits, which forces him to glide the plane in for a landing. This being the case, the propeller should have stopped spinning, yet the entire time AFTER he's out of gas and the engine has supposedly quit, you can clearly see the propeller spinning at high RPM, which would indicate an engine still running normally, with ample fuel.

Widmark and Greer racing through the jungle...
31 January 2002 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I tuned into this one on TCM and heard Robert Osborne refer to it as a remake of THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME--BUT in my opinion, only in vague outline. Like GAME, it ends with a chase through the jungle with the bloodhounds on their trail and leads to their final escape. But there are several novel twists and turns along the way and the suspense is in high gear once the chase begins.

Jane Greer appeared in so many B&W film noirs of the '40s that it's surprising to see her in technicolor. She looks great and has good chemistry with Richard Widmark's adventurous writer. Both of them appear to be having a tough time physically as they trudge through swampy waters and slash their way through thick jungle. Trevor Howard is the villain of the piece, not quite as menacing as Charles Laughton in the original.

Gripping suspense yarn will keep you glued to your seat as you wonder how it all turns out. Give it a chance, as it starts slowly before the plot thickens.
