Trivia

In both this film and the previous version, Sanders of the River (1935), there is a boat named Zaire. In the this film it is a small launch whereas in the previous film it is a large paddle-steamer. See more »

Goofs

In the final scene Todd and the girl, in a boat on the river, look up and see an aircraft supposedly taking the other girl back to civilization. This Lufthansa Boeing 707/700 is clearly trimmed for landing with wheels and flaps extended. Any 707 of that era powered by the Pratt and Whitney JT3D engine would be emitting vast amounts of smoke when on full power after take off as to gain max power in tropical conditions it used water injection to increase thrust, creating a massive amount of soot.

Is Vivi Bach the worst actress ever?
5 October 2007 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Anyone witnessing the performance of Vivi Bach as Marlene the nurse will not be struck dumb with amazement at her beauty,or her flawless hair but at the sheer ineptitude of her attempts aas an actress in this film.there are also some other rather sonambulistic performances and a great deal of dead wood.the sound is rather poor and the colour is extremely variable.Richard Todd is his dependable self.So all in all this is a fairly entertaining film given the standout performance of Viv Bach and if you are a connoisseur of bad performances then you are in for a treatIt is also padded out by a lot of scenes of big game and wild animals.
