During the construction of a railroad in Africa, workers are terrorized by a pair of hungry lions. After numerous people are eaten and attempts by local hunters to destroy the lions fail, American engineer Stack succeeds in killing the beasts. The first feature-length film to be shown in
3-D, Arch Oboler's "classic" brought thousands of Americans into theaters where they promptly donned annoying, ill-fitting glasses and proceeded to watch frightened natives hurl spears and angry lions leap off the screen and into their laps. Aside from the novelty of its presentation, the film is
a tedious, less-than-thrilling action adventure.
