Secret of the Incas Reviews

Ehh...there wasn't really too much of a story with this one. I noticed that Heston always uses his mouth muscles, especially his jaw to express his emotions.

Quite an entertaining adventure, especially for its time.
As many have pointed out, the character Heston plays here seems to have been a direct influence on Spielberg and Lucas when they dreamed up Indiana Jones. They certainly look the same, but the big difference is that while Indy is doing it for science, Chuck Heston's character is doing it for the money.
And that's what makes this movie so unexpectedly appealing -- Heston's character is unapologetically greedy and with many scruples.
One more thing: extra points for the film because it was actually shot on location in Peru as opposed to some filming the actors on a sound stage in Hollywood with tacky backdrops behind them.
Check it out if you get the chance. Perfect for a lazy weekend afternoon.
