Plot Summary

An eccentric scientist working for a large drug company is working on a research project in the Amazon jungle. He sends for a research assistant and a gas chromatograph because he's close to a cure for cancer. When the assistant turns out to be a "mere woman", he rejects her help. Meanwhile, the bulldozers get closer to the area in which they are conducting research, and they eventually learn to work together, and begin to fall in love. Written by Ed Sutton

Did You Know?

Trivia Sir Sean Connery's hairstyle in this movie was based upon composer Jerry Goldsmith's well-known ponytail. Meeting him at a cocktail party, Connery started the conversation by saying, "I want your hair." Goldsmith replied, "You can't have it, it's mine." Connery, and even the producers, felt Goldsmith's "pulled back ponytail" fit the character of Robert Campbell very well. See more »

Quotes Dr. Robert Campbell: It's only one fly in the serum. I can't reproduce it.
Dr. Rae Crane: What do you mean?
Dr. Robert Campbell: None of the new samples work and I have very little of the original serum left. That's what I mean when I say I can't reproduce it.
Dr. Rae Crane: Wait a minute. I don't understand.
Dr. Robert Campbell: What don't you understand? I found the cure for the fucking plague of the twentieth century and now I've lost it. Haven't you ever lost anything doctor Bronx? Your purse? Your car keys? Well, it's rather like that: Now you have it and now you don't.
