    Howard Hawks really was a directorial genius. This is a really different and fascinating film. Brilliantly played with a great deal of humanity by all involved. 8 years ago

    I'd say this movie must have had an influence on The Wages of Fear. Definitely different movies but they share a nihilistic view of white folk working rough jobs in South America.

    Another thing I was really impressed by was the aerial photography during MacPherson's flight. I wasn't aware there was anything that good until the post-WWII period, when directors like William Wyler and John Sturges came back from serving as Air Force filmmakers with a ton of experience under their belts.
