Sands of the Kalahari
No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Cy Endfield
1965 / 119min / 35mm
American expat Endfield and his repeat collaborator Stanley Baker followed their 1965 hit Zulu with this eerie and utterly idiosyncratic outdoor adventure film, in which the survivors of a plane crash in the Southern African desert must either learn to cooperate or perish, an increasingly aggressive pack of baboons in the area only adding to their troubles. As the group’s lone woman, York’s Grace Monckton is the prized trophy lusted after by Stuart Whitman’s big game hunter, who plots to pick off the remainder of the group and keep her for himself.
