Product Description

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!

NETWORK Have given us another excellent VFM DVD. Two versions of the film-4.3 Ratio and the enlarged (beautifully) 1.66 which fills my 32" screen with no obvious cut offs. Good picture, colour and sound on both versions. Extras are a trailer and Image Gallery. No subs. I wish I could be as enthusiastic about the film. I realise that here opinions will probably differ, but I found this surprisingly ponderous. It takes a good 35' of Andrews almost stalking (a very lovely) Jeanne Crain, before anything begins to happen, and even then Director George Marshall (The "Destrys") doesn't seem to go into top gear. The locations are splendid and the actors are there, tho the there are some puzzling studio inserts and back drop shots, and go thru some pretty hefty actions in the last 35' or so. I won't fault the actors, and maybe I was watching it on the wrong day. A very good price, a film long unseen and such good quality, I just wish I had liked it a bit more. Give it a go yourself.

I have always been a Dana Andrews and Jeanne Crain fan but the story was a bit contrived

DUEL IN THE JUNGLE - one of the juicy cherries from the immensely varied back catalogue of pictures made by the Associated British Picture Corporation (ABPC) lineage between 1925 and 1986, this is long-awaited. Associated British gained Dana Andrews at the top of his game, Jeanne Crain very much looking as fresh as she ever did, and that epitome of the masculine Englishman, David Farrar, who would go out to Hollywood again as result of this picture, including a co-starring with John Wayne at Warners. With David MacDonald and Ken Annakin both considered but busy overseas, for the DUEL IN THE JUNGLE Director, ABPC - at the prompt of Jack L. Warner - negotiated for George Marshall, who will never get the credit he deserves for his masterly stroke over a passel of great Westerns, from which he brings all of his capability to this.

ABPC reigned in their own famous refrain over cost considerations, and began a separate Central African film studio and African continent filming base under their Elstree name, which they would never really fully get to use on more than a dozen pictures of their own into the mid-sixties. True that like the comparable big pictures coming from Universal and Warners in Hollywood at that rich cinematic time, much of the action takes place in studioscapes, back in England ABPC's Elstree complex was installed with acres of water tankage (just as they were also planning to build the Moby Dick tank on the backlot, in preparation for their John Huston epic with Warners), flowing rivers running through each of the stage blocks.
