“Under John Huston’s fine direction, the action moves along in splendid style.” —The New York Times
“Striking pictorial aspects, exciting performances, and builds to a pulsating climax of absorbing tension.”
John Huston’s adventure-packed adaptation of Romain Gary’s Prix Goncourt-winning novel takes a prescient look at an early eco-warrior (Trevor Howard) waging a battle to preserve the elephant herds of French Equatorial Africa. With the colonial government and bloodthirsty ivory hunters aligned against him, he joins forces with a motley band of rebels—including a jovial but perpetually hammered ex-military man (Errol Flynn) and a world-weary bar girl (Juliette Greco)—in a courageous effort to save the last wild things of this Earth.
