A weird and wonderful combination of melodrama, sexual symbolism and exotic adventure. At the turn of the century, South American plantation-owner Heston battles both with an army of red ants and with his feelings of impotence and disgust towards the red-haired beauty he has married by proxy (Parker). Produced by George Pal, sumptuously shot by Ernest Laszlo, intelligently and literately scripted by Philip Yordan, it somehow, miraculously, holds absurdity at bay.
