Storyline

This is a film comprised primarily from footage shot by the exploring team of Mr. and Mrs. William Phillips, nee Bill and Eve Phillips, a minor league version of the better-known Martin and Osa Johnson. It, between tons of shots of bare-breasted Choco and Cuna Indian women, has a flimsy plot about a party of engineers "seeking" a continental highway route from South America through Central America to the United States. It also uses stock footage of U.S. airforce helicopters, called the non-existant United States Rescue Service here,as part of the search mission plot toward the end. No branch of the U.S. armed services provided any funding or cooperation on the making of this film, and the William Phillips in this film is not actor William 'Bill' Phillips. The only two names connected to this film that anybody had ever heard of before (barely) or afterwards are A. R. Milton and Archie Dattlebaum. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Corrections on credits of film, of which I shot the major part.
20 October 2002 | by (Red Beach, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Originally I was asked to film a short subject about the Choco' Indians in Panama jungle. Excited by the scenes of topless Indian women, the Hollywood producers then added a "story" about them as headhunters, using made-up "actress' from the bars of Tiajuana, Mex., filmed in San Diego park's eucalyptus forest. The credited director etc. were only involved in this phony part of the film.

The promo sheets are classics of fiction: telling how these guys suffered through the jungle during filming, even learning how to cook Indian cuisine.

No U.S. funds were used, but U.S.Air Force did provide a valuable medical kit we used to treat Indians, and some chopper transport during one of their training flights (at a time when this was still an ethnic film production).
