Lee Van Cleef,
Malaya 1938. Captain Yankee and his friend Gin Fizz make a living by selling dreams to rich foreigners. With the help of some natives they let their clients think to have lived fantastic adventures. One day Maria Cortez, a Columbian museum director, arrives to search for a fabulous ruby and Captain Yankee is blackmailed by Warren into accepting the task. It won't be easy. Written by

I saw this years ago, and was astonished when I first saw it. It is a bad film, with a hunt for some gem called The Ruby of Gloom. Why anyone would look for something with a name that dubious escapes me, but okay.
The outstanding thing in this film, the thing that stayed with me, was the pet of a boy who was a member of Captain Yankee's party. It was a hooded cobra. This snake was very bright: he could put Lassie to shame, even conducting a scouting mission for the boy. He was so bright, he spotted a lady snake and slithered out of the film before the action concluded.
Not bad. Just silly.
