Not bad adventure yarn
25 February 2018 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Don't expect to find here a sort of Henry King's UNTAMED or ZULU kind, even if this movie belongs to the South African epic tales list. It is especially a very rare movie which I found ONLY in f...pan and scan and black in white copy, I guess from a 16mm print. It's a South African western with good acting and directing from Georges Sherman,a Hollywood vet. Good time waster.
