Editorial Reviews

Glenn Ford (3:10 to Yuma) stars in this modern day "south-western" as Sam Dent, a rancher who travels to South America to deliver a cargo of valuable Brahma bulls to a Brazilian rancher only to find the buyer has been murdered. Cesar Romero (Coney Island) co-stars as a dashing and jovial bandito, "El Gato" who becomes Sam's guide and friend. Also co-starring Frank Lovejoy (Retreat, Hell!) as an unscrupulous and homicidal land grabber, Bento Hermany who offers Sam a job as his Ramrod with strings attached. And just when we thought things couldn't get more complicated; Sam finds himself caught between the loves of Teresa (Abbe Lane) and Marianna (Ursula Thiess). Those are merely the human obstacles; there are also piranhas, deadly snakes and other jungle predators to contend with. Luxurious cinematography shot on location and in Technicolor by William E. Snyder (The Loves of Carmen) and featuring the music of legendary bandleader Xavier Cugat. The Americano was one the few larger-budgeted directorial efforts by exploitation king William Castle (The Tingler).

3.0 out of 5 stars Quiet hero scores again December 11, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Glenn Ford does his patented understated hero again, this time as a Texas cowboy delivering prize Brahma bulls in Brazil where he runs afoul of bad guy Frank Lovejoy. But it is Cesar Romero, an actor who once played the Cisco Kid, who steals the show as an aging and comical bandit -- much as we might believe the real Cisco would have become in his later years. Cult director William Castle, of all people, helmed this RKO film and did an OK job.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am biased January 20, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Even if a film is not the greatest, Glenn Ford makes it better than mediocre. Please do not compare this film with the slam bam sparkle blitz of today's films. When this flick was made, they had to rely on real actors. Glenn Ford is a real actor who uses body language, gestures, facial expressions, moments of quietness, and yes, words which are clearly understandable. This was a good film and it's well worth watching. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A splended Glen Ford Movie January 8, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is one of the best Ford movies I've seen, the casting of Chemistry between Ford, Lovejoy, and Romero , and the the rest of the all star crew was phenomenal !!! The story Directed by William Castle was excellent!! It's more than a run of the mill cowboy movie!! The set is the Jungle in Brazil, where Ford ends up transporting three Brama Breeding Bull's to a rancher (Lovejoy) a Brazilian batsman, Ford links up with Ceaser Romero, a comical style Brazilian Bandit to guide him to Lovejoys ranch, the story only gets better from there, there's also great Native music and song by Abby Lane, it's well worth watching!!!.
