Strange as it may seem, I've only ever had one job and I have had that since 1989.
I'm a film archivist at the South African National Film, Video and Sound Archives www.national.archives.gov.za and I handle client services.

That is, any person who's looking for film footage relevant to South Africa since 1898 and this great site is my home now since my IT dept. blocked my ass from the IMDB.

Warm greetings to all here!  Cheers

Trever, I find the South African location films of some interest. It seems that back in the 60's it was a place to shoot rather bland films where I suppose those involved just wanted a reason to visit South Africa and shooting a film was perfect. Here are some titles that I have picked up in the past that where all shot in South Africa.

The Jackals (1967) - Vincent Price stars in this film set in the 1800's of a South African abandoned mining town. Not a bad film.

Code 7, Victim 5 (1964) - Lex Barker stars as some kind of do nothing detective "Bond" type character. Great location shots.

The Cape Town Affair (1967) - Starring Jame Brolin and Jacqueline Bisset. The best part of it was seeing scenes from Cape Town, South Africa

Untamed (1955) - Actually saw part of this on TV about a wagon train among the Zulu. (not sure this was shot in South Africa)

I believe that if you go to http://anonymouse.org/anonwww.html you can get to any site you are blocked from, since I'm not blocked from anything I can not test it. Google "anonymous surfing" or any carnation thereof.

Hey, you are right.  That's why I would opt for a the low-tech solution and FIRE somebody for browsing IMDB when they should be working - assuming that is not relevant to their job.  Now Trevor sounds like his job is related to looking up movie information, so why they'd block him from IMDB is beyond me.

It's not about feeling like a mini-God, though - it's about getting what I am paying for: an honest day's work.

Hi Scott.

Yes, unfortunately there were a lot of filmmakers in SA during the 60's and later who took advantage of the natural beauty and the varied locations, not forgetting the fact that SA crews and actors are hard workers but notoriously low paid ones. That unfortunate state of affairs continues to this day.

The NFVSA (National Film Archives) has all the films you mentioned and yes, Untamed with the lovely Susan Hayward was made here in its' entirety.  TeddyR

 :hatred:I really don't know why they blocked me from the IMDB as I get a lot of enquiries from there re SA films and I try to help people on their message boards there. They let me go to places like www.nakedandninety.com but the IMDB: No, there be prawnographee!
