Jivaro (film)

Jivaro (1954) also known as Lost Treasure of the Amazon, is a 3-D Technicolor film starring Fernando Lamas, Rhonda Fleming and directed by Edward Ludwig. Publicity material for the film translates Jivaro as "headhunters of the Amazon".

Originally filmed in stereoscopic 3-D, due to a decline in interest Jivaro was not presented in that format in its original release. It later had its 3-D debut on the 17th of September 2006 at The World 3-D Expo in Hollywood.

He decided to try to get some Jivaro to help him carry the radio and guide him over the trail from Wambimi to the Atshuara country.

Then I realized how concerned we had been about him on the trail, with Just a Jivaro guide and a few provisions.

The Jivaro who had promised to carry it in had gotten wind of the sickness among the Atshuaras, and, knowing how deadly flu can be, refused to go near the place.

The large house was thatched, with round ends, Jivaro style, and around it were several smaller squarish houses with thatched roofs, square on the ends.
