An eccentric scientist working for a large drug company is working on a research project in the Amazon jungle. He sends for a research assistant and a gas chromatograph because he's close to a cure for cancer. When the assistant turns out to be a "mere woman," he rejects her help. Meanwhile the bulldozers get closer to the area in which they are conducting research, and they eventually learn to work together, and begin falling in love. Written by

Sean Connery's hairstyle in this movie was based upon composer Jerry Goldsmith's well-known ponytail. Meeting the composer at a cocktail party, Connery started the conversation by saying, "I want your hair." Goldsmith replied, "You can't have it, it's mine." Connery, and even the film's producers themselves, felt Goldsmith's "pulled back ponytail" fit the character of Robert Campbell very well. See more »

Killer, non-blockbuster (they can't all be, and shouldn't all be, box office smashes - there has to be room for really good small films) movie. Apparently a lot of watchers of this film spent a lot of viewing time yawning or chatting because most of their complaints are addressed in the course of the film.
This isn't a high concept story. It doesn't need explosions and chest beating, flash and deafening sounds to keep your attention.
Scary if you think about it. Horrifying if you keep up with rare botanicals and disease.
Absolutely last note as to the film's worthiness ... Sean Connery.
