Manhunt in the Jungle
Originally intended as a 4-reel followup to the 1957 "docudrama" short subject The Amazon Trader, Manhunt in the Jungle was extended to feature length in hopes of better bookings. The story is based on the 1928 search for explorer Col. P. H. Fawcett, who disappeared somewhere in the Amazon. Robin Hughes stars as Cmdr. George M. Dyott, the man who organized the searching party for the missing Fawcett (James Wilson). The Warnercolor exterior shots of Peru and the Amazon regions are the highlights of the film. Less successful are the dramatic passages, which look like something out of a junior-high production of Stanley and Livingstone. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
