Synopsis:
Set in Africa, Trevor Howard stars as Morel, a crusading environmentalist who sets out on a one-man mission to preserve the elephants from extinction as a lasting symbol of freedom for all humanity. As Morel's crusade gains momentum he is helped by Minna (Juliette Gréco), a nightclub hostess, and Forsythe (Errol Flynn), a disgraced British military officer hoping to redeem himself. Adapted from Romain Gary's bestselling and critically acclaimed novel of the same name, this proved to be Errol Flynn's final film; the screen icon died less than a year later. The film itself was shot on location in French Equatorial Africa, a grueling experience for its stars and crew.
