It is the movie of Elaine Stewart
18 January 2014 | by gregorhauserSee all my reviews

This movie seems to be very unnoticed. But it is really worth a view! An interesting atmosphere, a well directed plot and excellent actors. Most of all it scores with the pairing of Elaine Stewart and John Derek. It is their second movie together after "The Adventures of Haji Baba". And again the chemistry between these two beautiful people is incredible. In my opinion Elaine Stewart is one of the prettiest and sexiest women ever hit the screen. It is hard to understand why she did not become a bigger star!

Watch the scene in this movie where she is taking a bath in a old barrel. One of the prospectors come in and .... She really is a gifted actress. The scene is a highlight and every admirer of the movies from the 50s should know it.
