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>

User Reviews

This film should be re-released
10 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

With the right marketing this film could be re-released in Australia and France, and possibly elsewhere. It's a solid entry into the "adventure" genre, with slightly wooden but totally endearing performances by the cast.

Chips Rafferty is quite charming in a blue-collar no-nonsense sort of a way, and it's extraordinary to see how the Australian film persona has evolved since then.

Some of the imagery of Papua and New Guinea is breathtaking, and would be utterly impossible to film now in light of security problems there now.

Come on Village Roadshow, do some forward-thinking PR and distribute this gem!!!!
