Decent, light comedy for your alternative section.
Hamilton Hornee (Buddy Pantsari) is a cheap detective who's sent, along with assistant (Elizabeth Monica), to Africa (Malibu Canyon, we're guessing, plus stock footage) to find a lost heiress (Deek Sills). He's accompanied by the usual crew: conniving cousins, a reporter (Lisa Grant), a scientist and an inebriated hunter, who thinks their target may be the "white goddess" of the Meshpoka ("family" in Yiddish) tribe.
It's a vaguely funny film, with humor and acting about on a par with the Adam West "Batman" TV show, and of about the same vintage,1970. Redheads abound, but interestingly, areolae don't; they appear to have been covered with "fleshtone" makeup. Of course, by the end, villains have gotten their comeuppance, "heroes" have gotten laid, and all's right with the world.
