I first saw this film about ten years ago and was bored by the run-of-the-mill, short on chemistry " romance",despite the personal, individual attractiveness of Poitier and Anderson,who looked gorgeous in those 70s fashions and Afro hairdo.However,I just recently caught what I consider the best and most memorable part- the spellbinding, electrifying appearance of the beautiful,talented South African singer, Letta Mbulu.What a voice! It was my first introduction to South African group performance.It saves the film in my opinion.
The film does have other redeeming qualities however, such as the star quality Sidney Poitier and the striking Johnny Sekka, a Senegalese actor who in his early roles in British cinema was type cast and who fared slightly better in Hollywood.
