Goofs

The Captain wears his uniform continuously throughout the movie. Unless on a big liner or a working ship like this, he would normally only wear this in port. It would be extremely impractical to wear the uniform daily like this and a Captain would change into cool casual wear when at sea in these climes. See more »

Sub-standard adventure in Africa
21 May 2002 | by (Chantilly, VA) – See all my reviews

Richard Todd is back as Harry Sanders in another African adventure. The story is good enough but the acting with this international cast is largely suspect. Heinz Drache and Marianne Koch are the main offenders of the wooden acting school but this may have something to do with the fact that English is not their first language. Dale Robertson as the Texan playboy has no such excuse. His character is such a stereotype, it's hard to believe that Robertson has made a career of playing cowboys. But then the writing has much to blame there. Special mention must go to the ending. Talk about a convenient one. This movie is the perfect example of tying up all loose plot endings with a bang. Not very satisfying but at least it's final. The movie should only be of interest to Richard Todd completists or people wondering what a Harry Alan Towers (the writer) movie would be like without the softcore sex and violence that would dominate his later films.
