Even though Peter and Kimani grow up together, Kimani soon finds that different races are treated differently. After the father of Kimani is jailed for following tribal customs, Kimani joins a band of rebels that wants all non-Kenyans out of their country. While Kimani believes in the cause, he does not agree with the indiscriminate killing of women, children, and those who will not join or agree with them. Peter, even after the deaths of his little sister and brother by the Mau Mau, still believes that there is a chance for peaceful co-existence. He believes that he can stop most of the killing if he can only reason with Kimani.Written by

Rock Hudson drove the film crew around the Nairobi National Park, with the stand-in for his co-star next to him. The crew and game warden were in the back of the semi-open Land Rover. Although all of the animals in the park were wild, they were used to vehicles. Many shots of various animals were taken, including baboons. For the latter, Hudson threw peanuts onto the front of the vehicle. One half-grown male, seeing the actual source of this food, jumped through the half-door onto Hudson's lap, stole some extra peanuts and even snatched a lipstick from the hand of the stand-in. Hudson grabbed the baboon by the scruff of the neck, calmly took back the lipstick, and threw the animal out. See more »

How then are they the masters and we the slaves? Is it white magic? Is it God's will? No. They have the guns. We too shall have guns. Are we ready for this? The whole colored world burns with the fever of revolt... with the fire for freedom. Do any of you have any questions? Is there a doubt in your hearts? What ...

The starting credits start with the words: "When we take away from a man his traditional way of life, his customs, his religion, we had better make certain to replace them with Something of Value!" See more »
This movie kept me interested but not satisfied.The cast is made up of good actors but they lacked the chemistry needed to make the film enjoyable. I usually love Sidney Poitier's acting but this performance seemed a bit contrived. Worth viewing if the subject matter interests you but don't expect to be moved by it.
