Fantasticly authentic on location production values (!), and good enough acting.
The character chemistry is an interesting arc.

The Haggard story is a classic, but perhaps its not so deeply engaging,.. as it had seemed to be when I was a boy.

When I was a kid I considered Stewart Granger to be the ultimate Man's Man!...Or should I say "Boy's Man?" (Live action, that is... Popeye was the animated equivalent of masculinity in my book!) And Deborah Kerr... well, how much more woman could a nine year old boy want!? Toss in H. Rider Haggard and this was to me a movie made in heaven. Actually, it was made in the Belgian Congo (and other African locations) and that's what's so amazing. I can't think of ever seeing such authenticity for period location shooting! It is really spectacular! Not just the locations but the music, costumes and actions of the locals are, more than any other film I can think of, realistic for the period. My hat is off to all those who made this extraordinary film! That said, the rest of the film is rather pedestrian and a bit dull at times.
