Storyline

David Moore is in East Africa to get to his employer's railway construction site. He's accompanied by the owner's son Brian and they've lined up Jack Cuortemayn, reputedly the best guide available, to take them there. Cuortemayn refuses as he doesn't care for the impact the railroad will have on the local inhabitants. While Moore tries to make other arrangements, he meets Ruth Knight who has lived there for many years working with her father in a medical clinic. There will be adventures along the way but when Ruth is captured by slave traders, its up to the others to rescue her. Written by garykmcd

Not as Bad as one would think
26 June 2010 | by (Long Island, New york) – See all my reviews

This film may have been a first feature shown before a main feature back in 1963. Warner Archive has just released this on DVD. I know the scenes of charging animals were intercut from "King Solomons Mines" (1950), however it is not as bad as one might think. Llyod Bochner does a good job as the engineer bent on getting his railroad built through the African Jungle. Frankie Avalon is there for comic relief and to sing a song. Yes the action is silly, and the dialog is sometimes laughable, but it is still a fun 91 minute time passer. Mariette Hartley is the love interest.

*** not so bad.
