Description by

Archaeologist Robert Burton is on a quest to discover a lost civilization deep in the sub-tropical wilderness of Mexico. Beautiful Katherine Williams, a photographer accompanying him to document the mission, convinces plantation owner Juan Cervantes to be their guide. As they navigate the dense and unforgiving terrain, a jealous rivalry develops between Burton and Cervantes, plunging the three into a heated love triangle that could prove even more dangerous than the Mexican jungle.

Initially a radio announcer from Syracuse, New York, William Lundigan's voice captured the attention of a Universal film executive. Lundigan embarked on a film career that spanned three decades before moving on to the small screen, notably hosting the popular CBS anthology, "Climax," and starring in the 1959 series, "Men Into Space."

Product Description:

A journalist is sentenced to death by a savage, Mexican jungle tribe in this highly-rated adventure.

Allmost cult movie! Movie Lover: from Ilion, Attica GR -- October, 29, 2009

The unparallel beauty of Peggy Castle and the picturesque festive manifestations of the inhabitants are inable to counterballance such a naif scenario. In the end the two rivals allie to save the damsel in distress. They manage to do so beating the fiercefull indians with nacked fists!
And what's more: The fiercefull savages refrain from using their spears and lances ( as a token of fair-play I guess ).
