Product Description

Green Hell (1940)


 James Whale


 Frances Marion (original story and screenplay)


 Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Joan Bennett, John Howard
Angry natives or a beautiful widow -- which poses the greater threat? Keith Brandon (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) is an archeologist leading a team of researchers -- Richardson (Vincent Price), Loren (Alan Hale), Forrester (George Sanders), and Scott (John Howard) -- who are exploring the jungles of South America in search of Inca artifacts. The scientists discover they are not welcome when Richardson is felled by a poisoned dart, and a difficult situation is made all the more complicated when Stephanie (Joan Bennett), Richardson's wife, appears unannounced to pay her husband a visit. Stephanie must join Brandon's party as they make their way through the wilderness, with angry and armed natives surrounding them on all sides, and in the midst of the tension and danger, both Brandon and Forrester discover they're attracted to to Stephanie, leading to a dangerous rivalry among the crew. Green Hell would turn out to be the last feature film completed by the noted and idiosyncratic horror director James Whale; while he was credited with another film, They Dare Not Love, Whale in fact backed out of the project before shooting was finished.

  1. Green Hell 1940 3 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 29th 2019

    Why this film is so hard to get a hold of and not available as a blu ray or in restored format? Sad when you consider it's pedigree. The good news is you get to see a very young Vincent Price and George Sanders is out right goofy, playing against type. The obvious comparison is to Whale's Old Dark House. GH also has a disparate group facing a common threat. ODH's pulled this off with major creep factor and stand out performances by Laughton,
    Brember Wills and over the top Ernest Thesiger. GH has Fairbanks, who is okay with his jodhpurs left over from Gunga Din but most are cardboard like George Bancroft's dopey Tex. It's a hit if you like cliche unga bunga men. Plot does pick up about 3/4 of the way but what is more interesting is how many other movies were filmed on these sets. Pretty much a career killer for Whale, boo.
