Film information

Story: A disparate group of travellers descend upon the East African coast, all hoping to claim a piece of uranium-rich land. Billy (Humphrey Bogart) and Maria Dannreuther (Gina Lollobrigida) arrive with their four shady business partners, but seem to have been beaten to the mark by the priggish Harry Chelm (Edward Underdown) and his wife Gwendolyn (Jennifer Jones). When they all attempt to leave, their steamer explodes, and the seven survivors are taken hostage by a group of Arabs. John Huston directed this offbeat spoof-adventure from a Truman Capote script. This special edition is introduced by Tony Curtis and features the original theatrical trailer for 'The Big Sleep'. The DVD also includes the 30-minute documentary 'Humphrey Bogart on Film - A Biography'.
