Browne plays an adventurer named Clint who is hired to travel across Borneo
with a bunch of rogues and geologists in the search of an elusive diamond

Samoa, but trouble soon erupts when the diamonds are found and the natives

Director Guido Malatesta
was essentially a safe filmmaker who never tired of telling the same
story in the same way through numerous Peplums, Spaghetti Westerns and eventually
Jungle films. He is best known for COLOSSUS
AND THE HEADHUNTERS in the early '60s and Femi Benusi's jungle girl
a decade later. SAMOA, came a couple years
prior and was an early starring role
for future genre queen Edwige Fenech who is reason enough to watch as she
is remarkably gorgeous in whatever she's almost wearing. Mr. Malatesta died
from a heart attack in June 1970 at the age of 51.
