Storyline

An eccentric scientist working for a large drug company is working on a research project in the Amazon jungle. He sends for a research assistant and a gas chromatograph because he’s close to a cure for cancer. When the assistant turns out to be a “mere woman”, he rejects her help. Meanwhile, the bulldozers get closer to the area in which they are conducting research, and they eventually learn to work together, and begin to fall in love.

Trivia

Sir Sean Connery’s hairstyle in this movie was based upon Composer Jerry Goldsmith’s well-known ponytail. Meeting him at a cocktail party, Connery started the conversation by saying, “I want your hair.” Goldsmith replied, “You can’t have it, it’s mine.” Connery, and even the producers, felt Goldsmith’s “pulled back ponytail” fit the character of Robert Campbell very well.

Goofs

When Dr. Crane says she’s not a nineteen year old grad student working up a resumè, there’s a factual error. A graduate student wouldn’t be that young. See more »


Quotes

Dr. Robert Campbell:
Well, we’re back to square one. Where did I go wrong, the kissing up or the eating crow part?

Dr. Rae Crane:
Well, it wasn’t a total loss.

[Rae looks past Campbell. One of the natives has just walked up and looks to Campbell for help; he holds his sick child, now dying, in his arms]
