Secret of the Incas

Hey kids!  Ready for some Yuma Sumac and proto-Indiana Jones?

Here’s an enjoyable film that’s got all the historical veracity you’d expect from the era (HINT: none).  Ok, it’s not a history lesson, but I do think these old films are fun to watch while we understand the context they were made in.

Meanwhile – how many other places are you going to see Yuma Sumac perform?  She’s awesome!  Check it aught:

Synopsis – An Incan legend states that the Inca Empire was destroyed by the gods when a gold and jeweled starburst was stolen from the Temple of the Sun centuries ago, and that the ancient civilization will be reborn once the treasure is returned. Harry Steele (Charlton Heston), an adventurer, is seeking the artifact, as is his nemesis Edward ‘Ed’ Morgan (Thomas Mitchell), along with Elena Antonescu (Nicole Maurey), an Iron Curtain refugee.
