The war in China they are covering is the Sino-Japanese War (1937-45). See more »
There would not be any electricity in the jungle to run the bright, powerful projector used by Chris to intimidate the natives. See more »

Well, I never saw weather clear up quicker. This business must be alittle like an insane asylum.

It's nice though. You don't realize you're in the violent ward until you're stuck to the bed.

We wish to thank Her Majesty's Governor of Netherlands Guiana for permitting our expedition to enter the jungles of the Tottiekampu country. Our thanks also to Chief Moi of the Matawais tribe for allowing us to record for the first time the sights and sounds of the Djuka Fire Dance Ritual. See more »

good time movie!
I first saw this movie when I was in my 20's, and thought it was incredibly funny, exciting, and totally out of the realm of believability. But in addition to all that, it was the magic between the characters that made it so much fun. Gable and Loy, A list stars who could carry any picture on their own, seemed to let their status go by the wayside as they just jelled on screen. Walter Pigeon was great as always, and every great character actor in the world was on board somewhere, it seemed, during it's 86 minutes or so... I loved it then, still do, and watch it once a year just because it makes me feel so good.
