A group of men are on safari. One of the party refuses to give a gift to a tribe they encounter. The tribe is offended, seizes the party, and one-by-one, kills all but one of the safari members in various creative and horrifying ways. The last surviving member is given "The Lion's Chance" by the tribal leader to be hunted down by a party of tribal warriors. Naked and weaponless he is set loose, the hunters hot on his heels, beginning a life-or-death hunt through wild Africa. Written by
In October 1808 Colter set out to trap with another member of Lisa's company, John Potts. Foolishly, they returned to the Three Forks area, where they were able to amass almost a ton of fur. However, at Jefferson Fork they were attacked by Blackfeet who shot and killed Potts and took the furs. Colter was captured and given a chance to live. He was stripped naked and given 30 seconds' headstart to run for his life. Colter outran all of them except for one. When they were the only two left, Colter turned upon him and killed the man with his own spear. Colter ran for five miles across a rocky plain between the Jefferson and Madison Forks. Once he reached the Madison River, he dived under a mass of logs and beaver lodges and hid in an air pocket in the icy water until nightfall. He went six miles downstream and climbed up a sheer cliff. He walked, still without any clothes, the 250 miles to Fort Raymond, where he arrived after 11 days. See more »
When Wilde is surrounded by the snakes we plainly hear Rattlesnake sound effects. None of the snakes are rattlers since they aren't indigenous to Africa. See more »
What a rare and glorious film. The Africans, the Whites, the Arabs -- all thrashing about a primitive world blindly lurching for profit, vengeance, pride, and redemption. The animal scenes are bit canned, but the hardy authenticity of tribal southern Africa is marvellous. You can tell these are not extras from Culver City. It's a movie not afraid of blood and savagery. You root for the cunning and feel the fear on both sides. And the ending does make sense to those who know that men appreciate even an enemy who has fought bravely.
