A band of mercenaries led by Captain Curry travel through the Congo across deadly terrain, battling rival armies, to rescue $25 million in uncut diamonds. 

Take elite commandos, send them on a do-or-die assignment - and sit back and watch the action explode. The men-on-a-mission formula that worked in 1967's The Dirty Dozen and in Where Eagles Dare (released in the U.S. in 1969) provides another salvo of volatile screen adventure with this strike-force saga released in 1968. Rod Taylor and Jim Brown are among a mercenary unit rolling on a steam train across the Congo, headed for the dual tasks of rescuing civilians imperiled by rebels and recovering a cache of diamonds. The film's violence is fierce, unforgiving, ahead of its time. Quentin Tarantino would offer a tribute of sorts to this red-blooded wallop of a cult fave by using part of its compelling score in Inglourious Basterds.

    very gloomy movie, i remember being somehow shocked by it when i saw it in early teenage years. But seeing again at a, quite, more advanced age, i realize it is a very well crafted film, with the right balance of ouch and wow moments. Thank you for the post.

    For me, Dark of the Sun (1968) is one of those "I wouldn't change a thing" classics that I never get tired of. It just gets better with age. Thanks for the gorgeous copy!
