As a variety of the mineral beryl the emerald is a gemstone that is colored green and contains trace amounts of chromium and vanadium. Its name derives from the ancient Greek word "smaragdos" which means "green gem". Although mined since 1500 BC in ancient Egypt the largest producer of emeralds is Colombia with 50-95% of the world production. See more »
The wheelbarrows being loaded to take up to the mine are not an industrial/mining wheelbarrow. They are common shallow garden wheelbarrows of the type found in the US in the 50's and 60's. They are shallow and very light weight. Not the type that would be seen in a mining operation. See more »
By far, the cast overshadows this routine action/adventure tale of a duo of soldiers of fortune seeking emeralds in Columbia. Kelly seems out of place as the young maiden running a coffee plantation, who eventually confronts Granger over labor and water rights. The location shots are of interest, and Granger and Douglas do the best they can with the script. Hackneyed ending provides no surprises.
