This has always been one of my favorite adventure films and it's probably because I saw it at the right time in my life that I never forgot it.
It's a very simple story about the search for a missing adventurer. Marshall Thompson is Dr. Joseph Faraday and he has a hot air balloon he will use in an effort to rescue a missing adventurer named Hubert Warrington (Douglas Kennedy).
It turns out Warrington isn't really missing. He's being held in a torture chamber by a cruel Hindu who wants information on a hidden treasure.
Faraday is accompanied on his journey by the Hindu (James Lanphier) and a lovely young woman named Ellen Burton (Mala Powers). The battle cannibals and Condors on their way to find Warrington and finally they make their destination.
They also discover that it is an elaborate trap set by the Hindu to make Warrington talk. He plans to torture Ellen in order to get information on the treasure, so Faraday must try and save the day.
Most people don't have anything good to say about this film but I enjoyed it a lot and always will. The print isn't too bad on the DVD at all, but I do wish it had been in wide screen. Oh well you can't have everything.
