  • Looks like a splice job

    The introductory scenes of the white explorer and woman doctor in ?Africa? appear to be from a fifties movie or TV show. Except for Brock Peters and the old woman, the tribe isn't even black.
  • An American anthropologist has gone missing in an African jungle. Is he dead - and, if so, what's killed him?

    It's not a little sad to see the mighty Brock Peters speaking in broken English in the role of an African witch-doctor, and modern viewers may wonder about political correctness; still, this story is finished swiftly (under a quarter of an hour) and has a few moments of genuine disquiet. Logoda's collection of shrunken heads is quite impressively nasty and the last shot - when we notice that the heads now have teeth bared (and bloodstained) - is most effective. It also makes a pleasant change to find that the British character is the one who shows sensitivity and consideration towards African village life and culture, whilst the visiting American is crude and insulting.
