Fun facts about this movie|
Rod Taylor and Yvette Mimieux appeared eight years earlier in the
1960 film, H.G. Wells' The Time Machine directed by George Pal.
After a career in the NFL as a fullback for the Cleveland Browns,
Jim Brown first appeared on movie screens in the 1964 western
Rio Conchos and soon after achieved notoriety as a serious
actor in the outstanding WW2 action film The Dirty Dozen.
Although this movie is a fictional account of events, it is based on
certain facts - there actually was a civil war in the Congo from 1960-64
where acts of terrorism, rioting and mayhem created a virtual bloodbath
by African tribal warriors against European colonists.
Some movie enthusiasts think that the 2003 film Tears of the Sun
starring Bruce Willis is a virtual reboot of Dark of the Sun with a
similar title, plot and characters.
