Exciting adventure film set in Africa. Deborah Kerr and set across the exotic continent in search of her husband who was lost while hunting for treasure. The further they get away from civilization, however, the more they grow attached to each other, and Granger’s willingness to let this woman go back to her husband once they finally find him becomes increasingly slim. Gorgeously photographed, this is entertainment of the highest order.
