…an adventure for gold in the wilds of New Guinea. Action includes betrayals, encounters with head hunters and the poignant but ill-fated love of a native woman. The film shows many striking scenic effects and interesting ethnographic details, evidence of Hurley’s ability as a documentary film-maker. “Hurley takes one direct to the New Guinea he knows, and the natives he understands'” (Pike & Cooper. Australian Film 1900-1970. Oxford UP, 1981. 171)
