Look, Erica. I'm pretty beat up, and I haven't got too much hair, and I'm not too young anymore. What I mean to say is, well, I'd like you to marry me.
It's difficult to think with so much danger around.
Not for me it isn't! Oh, well. I'd have made a lousy husband, anyway.

Sequel from famed adventures film with too much use of stock footage
It's following from the classical ¨King Salomon's mines¨ ( directed by Compton Bennett and Andrew Marton, 1950 ) based on novel by H.R.Haggard with Stewart Granger and Deborah Kerr . Here the Allan ( one of the members of the league of extraordinary Gentlemen with Sean Connery ) Quatermain's son named Harry ( George Montgomery ) again leading a safari in search for legendary diamonds mines . The starring along with another hunter ( David Farrar ) save the damsel ( Taina Elg ) in distress and originating the ordinary loving triangle . They are fighting off natives , Crocs , Rhino, Cheeta and traps by Pigmeos , among others.
It's a quickie with lack luster and low budget but it manages to be at least an enjoyable adventures movie because contains action, sensational outdoors and outlandish cliffhanger situations abound . It's made on the sets and leftover from previous movie . In fact , the producer Sam Zimbalist ( Robot Monster, Cat women of the moon ) is known for short-budget productions. He fashioned a group of films using stocks originally shot since former films . We are seeing several African animals though the most turn out to be taken from an excessive utilization of stock-shots ,thus Gnus, Elephants, Crocodiles, Snakes, lions , Buffalos and a spectacular stampede . The starring is George Montgomery, a famous actor of B movies . He was born to Ukranian immigrants and was a heavyweight boxer previously becoming a player . Plus was an excellent craftsman and built and designed homes, besides a self-taught artist creating bronze busts for notorious actors . He starred films around the world and diverse genres : Adventures (this one and Steel Claw) , Warlike ( Battle of Bulge and Hell of Borneo ) and especially Western ( Seminola, Fort Ti, Last of badmen, Durango) . The motion picture is produced by M.G.M. and finely directed by Kurt Newmann ( The fly , Mohawk ). The picture obtained limited successful but results to be enough agreeable. It's a good stuff for young people and exotic adventures lovers who enjoy enormously with the extraordinary danger in the lush jungle.
