My friend and mentor David Millin ASC made the adventure film Ride The High Wind
(aka African Gold
) in 1965 which tells the story of an aeroplane crash survivor who stumbles on what could be the last resting place of a fortune in Anglo-Boer War gold. After being rescued, he mounts an expedition to the desert with a group of interested people, little knowing that one of them is a killer.
I should just add that by making this, David inadvertently made the first South African zombie movie: the final few minutes show a gun toting half corpse - half skeleton killing someone, so it is the first and so far only SA zombie movie.www.imdb.com/title/tt0187684
