  • Rediscovered: "Roots of Heaven."

    Yes, as said in other viewer reviews, this is a good, almost fine film. I saw it at a theater in London when I was a child, and was impressed. This morning, many years later, I found it again on TV. And -- I was still pleased with the production. Good cast, good story, and superior plot. Unusual, as it is based on an award winning novel by Romain Gary. Chris, www.carmelscribe.com

    Good film,unbelievable that so any animals killed by greedy so-and-sos for ivory sake!Thought this was more the basis for Clint's White Hunter Black Heart.Could see Flynn must've been nearing the end of his days,shame Howard didn't take a hint.

  • A fine, overlooked movie.

    That this movie has been overlooked for so long is criminal! A great cast and director...and a damn good story that should have been made available on DVD years ago. When you look at some of the trash that you can purchase on-line from TCM, or at Amazon.com, or from Barnes and Noblle it makes no sense that a movie with Errol Flyn, Travor Howard, Juliette Greco, Eddie Albert and Orson Wells is unavailable.

  • Errol Flynn at his best

    If you love Bartle Bull novels, Robert Ruark and the enticements of East Africa, you will love this treasure.

  • Errol Flynn fans must see

    I saw this movie as a youngster and have never forgotten it.It must have been one of the first hollywood movies concerned with african elephant conservation.The african scenery is magnificent, not to mention Errol Flynn's poignant portrayal of a washed up british soldier who has one last opprotunity to do the right thing.Trevor Howard is great as the 'MADHATTER" who takes on the government, poachers,the church and anyone else who gets in his way to save his elephants.It is ironic how it mirrors the later attempts of Adamsons to save the lions!
