King Solomon's Mines Reviews
Also starring Deborah Kerr as Elizabeth Curtis, who wants Quatermain to find her husband.
But three years later, Mogambo was made as a remake of the 1932 film Red Dust, also starring Clark Gable, in this remake of Red Dust, with Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly.
(1950) King Solomon's Mines
Most realistic portrayl of Allan Quatermain whose been turned into an mythical "Indiana Jones" type of figure in the 1980's starring Richard Chamberline ever since the success of "Raiders Of The Lost Ark". Anyways, actor Stewart Granger as Quartermain an Englishman whose lived in Africa most of his life, a hired guide through the jungles of Africa aiding Elizabeth Curtis played by the ravishing Deborah Kerr in search of her archeologist husband who was pronounced missing. The chemistry and the arising sexual tension between Kerr and Granger are the main highlights here, with interesting tidbits about African natives as well including it's culture is just as entertaining as "The Naked Prey" and "Trader Horn" to name a few.
WARNING: Don't expect this film to be another Indiana Jones type of film, first by considering the time it was made and second by it's synopsis.
