Synopsis by Hal Erickson
We pity the poor historian who has to catalog all the films of ubiquitous leading man John Ireland. Just when such a list seems to be complete, along comes an obscurity like Caxambu. Lensed on location in the Amazon, the film casts Ireland as a member of a diamond hijacking gang. Once they've escaped into the forest, the thieves must contend with headhunters. Audience exposure to Caxambu was largely confined to drive-ins and Late Late Shows.
