Enjoyed it!
2 March 2002 | by CCoughlinSee all my reviews

While this film is dated by today's standards I enjoyed it for it's beautiful African locale and use of LAND ROVERS! Dialogue is a little corny but remember that it was made in the 1960's after all...The film has a decidedly surprise ending and Darren McGavin does his best with the dialogue that was written. All and all, I still enjoy this movie!
