A British San Francisco ?
1 October 2014 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

This film bears a similarity to San Francisco with Gable(McLaglen) fighting for the affections of MacDonald (Gracie) with Tracey(Donlevy).This was the first film in Gracies new contract with Fox and it really isn't very good.They took her out of her British roots and placed her in South Africa.The story is poor and she has very little chemistry with either McLaglen or Donlevy.McLaglen could only give one performance.Whilst it might work in John Ford westerns it doesn't work here.Difficult to know who was a worse romantic foil to Gracie,McLaglen or John Loder.the best thing about the films are the songs.Fox clearly recognised their mistake by transplanting her back into her British environment with her next film,Keep Smiling.
