Colonial tea planter John Wiley, visiting England at the end of World War II, wins and weds lovely English rose Ruth and takes her home to Elephant Walk, Ceylon, where the local elephants have a grudge against the plantation. Ruth's delight with the tropical wealth and luxury of her new home is tempered by isolation as the only white woman in the district; by her husband's occasional imperious arrogance; by a mutual physical attraction with plantation manager Dick Carver; and by the hovering, ominous menace of the hostile elephants...

Well, a great locale, Liz looks stunning, Dana Andrews is his usual he-man self... and this DVD is of very good image quality. 16X9- progressive - colors looks great - there is a smidgeon of haziness at times but overall a very satisfying presentation.

Again Paramount chooses to go the economical route as opposed to adding some (any) extras. What can you say? Too cheap to pass up! Buy !
