Duel in the Jungle
This exotic, action-filled adventure boasts a truly outstanding transatlantic cast: Dana Andrews one of Hollywood’s most sought-after stars is the intrepid insurance investigator on the trail of a high-profile diamond broker who has vanished in southern Africa; Oscar nominee Jeanne Crain Andrews’ State Fair co-star is the woman who shares his heart-stopping quest, and Black Narcissus star David Farrar his dangerously elusive quarry. Dynamic, visually impressive and directed with characteristic flair by Hollywood veteran George Marshall, Duel in the Jungle is presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements. Filmed in the 1.33:1 aspect ratio, Duel in the Jungle was framed for 1.66:1 for those few theatres that at the time could exhibit widescreen images. Both versions are included on this release.
American insurance investigator Scott Walters is in London to check up on Perry Henderson, head of a major diamond concern, who is insured for a large sum of money… only to find that Perry is now in Africa, diving for diamonds on the sea bed; some time later comes news that Perry has drowned. Scott hurries round to see Perry’s fiancee, but finds she has vanished. Playing a hunch, he flies out to Africa, and is shocked at what he finds!
