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.

Couple crash-land in Mexican jungle, encounter Nazis in-hiding
9 October 1998 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

Widmark is the 'ever-popular-tortured-novelist', Greer the tabloid writer sent to Mexico to get the scoop on him. The two crash-land in Widmark's plane and are taken in by Nazis avoiding war trials. When the couple escape into the jungle, the chase begins. Great adventure, fore-runner of Indiana Jones-type stories. Howard is great as the heavy, running through the jungle screaming "LAT-TEE-MORE, OH, LAT-TEE-MORE!" Easily one of the best adventure movies of the '50s.
