Bandits target a gold miner and his granddaughter in 19th century South Africa. Robert Gunnar is the bandit with a heart of gold, who is after Price's cache of gold, but falls in love with Diana Ivarson, who has hair of gold (bleach). Written by
Opening narration - During the latter half of the last century, in the rugged hills and ridges of South Africa's Transvaal, gold was discovered. The result was a rushing, roaring tide of wealth seekers from all corners of the globe. First came the prospectors, high of hope, simple of purpose; and in their wake swept the next group: the speculators, the adventurers. Then, as inevitable as nature itself, there came the final ones: the scavengers, the jackals. See more »

In rugged South Africa, scavengers arrive from a US-styled western. The group's laconic leader is tall Robert Gunner (as Roger "Stretch" Hawkins). Mr. Gunner has a great name for westerns. He and his men find local blonde Diana Ivarson (as Wilhemina "Willie" Decker) attractive. She has a natural sway in her hips. Gunner kisses Ms. Ivarson roughly and you know they are falling in love. Her grandfather is prospector Vincent Price (as Oupa Decker). He is amusing. This is an anachronistic and unnecessary re-make of "Yellow Sky" (1948), which was an adaptation of Shakespeare's "The Tempest" (1623).
