The Perils of Diana

I work mightily hard to keep politics of the day away from the grand old motion picture stories, but for this adventure I will give you a bit of background on the times that this film was produced. The movie itself is a very good cowboy outlaw movie . . . set in South Africa. Now in 1967 when this was filmed Nelson Mandela had been in prison for four years, serving a lifetime sentence after a famous speech where he said, "I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die." This movie has absolutely no political bent, but rather is an excellent cowboy western romantic crime adventure with elephants roaming by instead of rattlesnakes, and a band of savage South African natives instead of American Indians, but it cannot be removed from the historic days in South Africa when it was being filmed. A band of outlaws robs a town safe and takes off into the South Africa wasteland to escape. The posse chases them to the edge of the wasteland and turns around saying that it isn't worth catching them to hang them because they were headed for certain death in the wastelands - no one could survive the brutal desert heat and lack of water. Near death the five outlaws stumble upon an old ghost town and discover a young blonde girl who directs them to a water hole. After getting their strength back they discover that the girl and her grandfather, played by Vincent Price, are prospectors who have discovered a rich vein of gold, and they decide to rob them of the gold before moving on. This begins our adventure of the not-so-helpless girl and her looney grandpa against five of the toughest, roughest outlaws you ever did meet. How does a young girl beat a tough gang of outlaws? . . . . fall in love with one of them, maybe. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
