East of Kilimanjaro
Originally released as La Granda Caccia, East of Kilimanjaro was filmed on location in Africa. Marshall Thompson plays American photojournalist Marsh Conners, assigned to cover a cattle epidemic. Falling in love with research scientist Dr. Marie Avedon (Gaby Andre), Conners attempts to help her convince the Masai tribesmen to have their cattle inoculated, and to locate the source of the disease. While the plot proper ends happily, the romantic subplot is less satisfying. East of Kilimanjaro was also distributed as The Big Search. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Voyage of the Yes
Desi Arnaz Jr. and Michael Evans play the teenaged protagonists of The Voyage of the Yes. The boys take on the challenge of a 2,600-mile sailboat trip from California to Hawaii. While tackling the boundaries created by Mother Nature, Desi and Michael learn to combat their own inbred prejudices. As a bonus for fans of the stars, Arnaz and Evans perform a song "El Condor Pasa." Made for television, The Voyage of the Yes was first telecast January 16, 1973. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
