Excellent Technicolor photography and a few thrilling wild animal sequences are the highlights of Where No Vultures Fly. On the whole, it’s a soundly made film, lensed in the attractive East African setting of the Kenya National Park.

Merely as a peg for the fine location work, there is tagged on an insignificant though basically true story of a game warden who starts the National Park after fighting local prejudice, hunters and ivory poachers. Plot is of little consequence. Main entertainment is derived from some of the exciting animal sequences.

Harry Watt’s direction of the game sequences is top grade, but he tends to flounder when handling human characters. Notwithstanding this, Anthony Steel, does an excellent and spirited job as the warden, but Dinah Sheridan is never anything but demure as his wife.
