Shot in 1968, but seems like it was done in '58, a rare feat of film trickery!
I enjoyed this film, though it feels like it was shot around 1962, or early 60's. It did not have the air of 'Woodstock' happening at around the same decade/era of this old classic; this film has a feeling on an old 50's adventure with Bogart or William Holden, not a 'late-1960's -soon-to-be-in-Duel' Dennis Weaver?! I have to say Vera Miles was super-hot in this film. I looked her up on here and she had won a Miss Kansas back in the day, so she was a true 'Beauty Queen' growing up, which helped her get her foot in the door.
Vera had a smokin' hot body, nicely hidden in that 1940's kinda way. It wasn't flaunted back then, but you could tell she was in great shape, underneath that blouse, and very sultry at 39 years of age.
They just don't make 'em like her anymore! Nor films like this.
Shot in the Philipines, it is full of jungle action, shoot outs, Japanese air-bombers (from actual WWII footage), and even "head-hunters", natives of an island they must walk through, complete with poison blow-darts & spear attacks! It wasn't that bad and was definitely not predictable.
I'd give this a strong 5.5 or 6 out of 10 stars.
