An unscrupulous American adventurer searches for a fabulous Inca treasure buried in a secret tomb high in the mountains of the Andes. However, he discovers he is not the only person after the priceless artefact.
Just one look at Charlton Heston dressed in khaki, fedora and brandishing a whip, and you know that this film influenced Spielberg in the Indiana Jones film, but just don't expect OTT, cliffhanging action, but a suspenseful archaeological drama thriller with some excitement and backed with interesting characters and eerie Peruvian singing ( though it can be too much singing and focus can be deterred from the story.) It does rely on its technicolour and location, but it's interesting enough to maintain your interest. There's some good acting, especially from Heston. Archaeological scenes are done really well,too.
