| Very good movie best described as mystery-sci fi
Ralph Bellamy is one of those unheralded but famous actors who managed to be a part of a large contributor to a lot of very good movies, many of them, like this one, lost over time. The plot (hence the writing) is what really made this a one of a kind and breakthrough movie. Unfortunately, not enough people know of it to let the plot break through, but few, if any, movies ever had this bizarre, yet believable plot. Without spoiling the movie, I'll just say that a young well to do doctor-researcher from high society joins a pair of less glamorous researchers in the jungle and they attempt to discover the cure for a deadly disease. Isolated from civilization, certain events take place, not because anyone is a maniac, but for other reasons, and a visit from a lady visiting one of the doctors presents a problem. Great atmosphere, acting, directing, and writing make this a film you'll be glad you saw, and wonder why isn't a mainstay in movie history.
