Trivia

Dana Andrews says to Jeanne Crain, "Destiny seems to insist on throwing us together." They had in fact worked together in State Fair the previous decade; and two more times after: Madison Avenue (1961) and Hot Rods to Hell (1967). In State Fair and this movie, they meet, and have a romance at the very end. In Madison Avenue they had been dating sporadically, and basically use each other. And Hot Rods to Hell is the only picture in which they play a married couple. See more »

"Bad Trouble if You Not Go Back, Bwana!"
29 September 2019 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

For its first half, the tone is fairly light-hearted as its American hero ambles about London (complete with a fleeting appearance by Paul Carpenter who would soon make a career out of starring in this sort of nonsense) before taking a slow boat to Northern Rhodesia; which is where the money has really been spent, and the matte work largely ends and the location work starts.

Ripe with saturated Technicolor, some of the jungle photography is magnificent; although you can usually see throughout where the studio ends and the second unit begins.
