Glued to the television, that’s all I can say about this movie. I was glued in 1967.
A safari guide ** takes several snotty English men into the African bush to go hunting. Before the party can proceed any further to kill hapless big game, they must gift the local friendly tribe with some coins. Beads maybe. Some yards of cloth. Whatever.
But, as one could have been seen coming, the lead Colonel Idiot insults the chief, claiming we don’t owe them nothin’ or something equally obnoxious.
Oh, it goes badly. So very badly. The guide was the only white man who treated the chief with respect and had tried to convince the English-I’m-better-than-you Colonel to do what he should do.
The English men were horribly tortured and killed. Because the tribe respected the guide, they gave him the privilege of running to safety, with six of the tribe’s best hunters after him. If he made it to safety at the “fort”, then he lived. And therein lay the adventure.
The guide is played by** actor Cornel de Wilde, the movie is “The Naked Prey”. Although it did not receive great reviews, this film entertains and Cornel de Wilde did his own running and stunts.
Would you be: the English man (?), the runner, the hunters, or just some person in the fort who opens the door for Cornel de Wilde?
Personally I'd be in the fort.
