Classic slice of 1950s Hollywood exotica. When her husband fails to return from an expedition in search of the legendary diamond mines of King Solomon, Elizabeth Curtis (Deborah Kerr) decides to go and fetch him herself. Hiring the rugged white hunter Alain Quatermain (Stewart Granger) as her guide, the prim Englishwoman heads into darkest colonial Africa, where she is impressed by the majestic scenary, thrilled by the vivid wildlife footage and intoxicated by the stirrings of repressed passions.
