Sands of the Kalahari movie scene

Stuart Whitman feels the heat in Sands of the Kalahari.

Olive Films released the acclaimed 1965 action-adventure film Sands of the Kalahari on Blu-ray and DVD on Aug. 2, 2011.

Another of Olive’s releases of a classic movie from the Paramount Pictures library, Sands of the Kalahari begins with a chartered plane crashing in a remote African desert after colliding with a swarm of locusts. And it’s not the harsh surroundings or the vicious baboons that the survivors have to worry about, but a fellow crazed passenger!

Directed and co-written by Cy Endfield, the movie’s cast includes Stuart Whitman (The Longest Day) as a businessman and big-game hunter, Stanley Baker (The Guns of Navarone) as a chain-smoking and alcoholic mining engineer, Susannah York (Superman) as a beautiful young divorcee, Nigel Davenport (Zulu Dawn) as the plane’s captain and Theodore Bikel (The African Queen) as a doctor.

Remastered in high-definition from a 35mm archive print, the Blu-ray and DVD carry the list prices of $29.95 and $24.95, respectively.
