Storyline

Steve McAllister, an Australian official for The New Guinea Administration, gets orders to investigate an oil discovery by Ned 'Shark-Eye' Kelly in the interior. He selects his native policeman, Sergeant-Major Towalaka, to accompany him on his "walk into hell" and then finds that a French lady doctor, Louise Dumurcet, is to go with them part of the journey. They find the malaria-stricken Jeff Clayton in a deserted village and he joins the trek. They are captured by jungle-natives but are released after Dr. Dumurcet cures the fever-stricken children of the chief. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Walk Into Paradise (Hell) was one of Oz's first International co-production.
18 July 2003 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Long before Australia had a real film industry, Chips Rafferty and Lee Robinson made movies in an old picture theatre at Bondi Junction (Sydney). They began modestly making small budget films for the Australian markert but soon realized the importance of International distribution.

With no help from the government, they arranged their own co-production deal with a French company. WALK INTO PARADISE (HELL) and THE STOWAWAY with Martine Carol were two of the joint ventures.

Rafferty and Robinson made no money from these films because the French took all the cream but both films are to tribute to Rafferty, Robinson and the fledgling Australian Film Industry of the time.

WALK INTO PARADISE is an epic adventure on a grand scale and was filmed almost entirely in the wilds of Papua/New Guinea. It still has a lot of entertainment to offer.
