Storyline

Following the end of World War I, explorer Allen Quartermain's son Harry travels to Africa to search for King Solomon's mines. He wears a special medallion given to him by his father from the Watusi tribe, who guard the mines. With him is his friend Rick Cobb. Along the way, they meet and take with them Erica Neuler, the daughter of a missionary who was killed by a local tribe. Harry has antagonistic feelings toward Erica because she is German. His mother and 8 year old sister were killed by Germans when the boat they were on was sank by a German U-boat. Can he overcome the challenges of hostile tribesmen, dangerous territory, and his own anger to find the treasure and the love of his life? Written by Paula Kimmel

Sequel from famed adventures film with too much use of stock footage
21 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

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.
